MOTIVATIONAL MONDAY: LOWER ABS

MOTIVATIONAL MONDAY: LOWER ABS

Happy Monday! Lower abs can be a difficult muscle group to workout, but I found a lower ab circuit that I really love from Fitwirr (I do it a few times a week). Try this circuit 2-3 times, 12-15 reps. You will definitely feel the burn! 😉

Reverse Crunch

1

Lie on your back and extend your arms flat by your sides. While lifting your feet off the ground, point your legs straight towards the ceiling (knees slightly bent). Press your lower back on the floor and lift your tailbone/butt off the ground. Make sure to do this exercise in a slow, controlled motion.

Scissors

2

Lie on your back with your feet together (extended), and hands flat on the floor underneath you. Raise your right foot straight up while keeping your left leg extended and your left foot a few inches off the floor. Lift your torso off the floor to perform a crunch and alternate legs. Keep alternating this motion for 30-60 seconds.

Elbow to Knee Crunch

3

Lie flat on your back and cross your left ankle over your right knee. Place your hands behind your head for support, and contract your abs as you lift both your shoulders and legs off the floor. Bring your elbow towards your knee, and alternate.

Plank

4

Start in a basic plank position while keeping your body straight. Lower yourself until you are resting on your forearms and keep your forearms parallel to each other. Hold this position for 60 seconds.
