My Ab Routine.

I’m no fitness queen, nor do I have a beach body or six pack whatsoever. However I have devised my own ab workout that works for me and what I am seeing results through. And I thought I’d share what I do for you.

I’ve been doing beginner workouts from YouTube for a while now and I was ready to get into, not advanced, but more in between stuff. And it may have just been me being slightly blind, I really couldn’t find much in that region. It was either beginners or advanced stuff and I just couldn’t seem to get one that was right for me. So, after watching a lot of videos I have developed my own, and here it is:

I always do a warm up, usually cardio based. Sometimes I go on my cross trainer but recently I have loved doing a dance routine. Specifically this one from Blogilates, and if I’m feeling good that day I’ll do it twice over.

For the actual workout this is how it goes:

Bicycle crunches for 20 seconds, 3 sets with 5 second breaks between.

Leg lifts for 20 seconds, 3 sets with 5 second breaks between.

Reverse crunches or 20 seconds, 3 sets with 5 second breaks between.

Russian twists for 20 seconds, 3 sets with 10 second breaks between.

Plank hip dips for 20 seconds, 3 sets with 10 second breaks between.

Spaghetti crunch for 20 seconds, 3 sets with 10 second breaks between.

Mountain climbers for 15 seconds, 3 sets with 10 second breaks between.

Side plank hip dips for 15 seconds on each side, 3 sets with 10 second breaks between.

Then of course, stretch off. Maybe start doing it once over, but if you’re feeling up to it do it twice over or without the breaks between. Also you can add weights if you want, I sometimes do for the Russian twists!

I hope this helps some people! Its a nice casual workout if you’re working towards getting a little fitter. Obviously you can mix and match these to suit you but I thought I’d share what I do on the day to day basis.

Until next time,

    I think I might need to give working out at home a try, I hate gyms. Good on you for getting into a nice routine, I’m way too lazy and unmotivated to set up a routine but I want to change it before the obligatory New Years rez.

  5. I need something like this in my life! I never get the chance to work out anymore as much as I should. Home workouts are great and your routine sounds pretty good!
