Especially in the winter I find myself taking shortcuts when it comes to my cardio workouts.
My favorite workout is Sprints combined with this Abdominal routine to strengthen your core and burn fat and keep my Momentum going.
Core strength is not the only benefit to this workout. The soreness in your abs after will keep you aware of your stomach all day! The sprints will exhaust you and make you realize how much weight you are hauling! That means healthier food choices, better posture, and maybe another workout the next day! Extra Bonuses! So get off your butt and try this absolutely killer routine.
For the Sprints you can use any of the following:
For the 10 minutes of Abs you will need:
A small bouncy ball
The Abs-olute Killer Core/Cardio
20 minutes of 1 minute all out effort followed by 1 minute recovery.
20 Plank Pull Through – Set the weight outside of your left side. Keep your plank position as you pull it to the other side. Keep repeating.
20 Ball Pass Crunches – Lying on your back, reach up and place the ball inbetween your ankles, lower the legs and shoulders and as you reach up you’ll grab the ball and go back down with the ball in your hands.
20 Ball Crunches – Place the ball at the small of your back. Keep your torso long and tall. Recline while keeping your abs strong and then sit up using abs.
20 Russian Twists – Hold a weight. Keep your torso long and tall. Lean back and hold abs strong while you rotate your torso side to side.
Repeat the abs above once or twice.
Stretch your hamstrings, hips, quadriceps, and calves
Now pat yourself on the back for not skipping that workout! Don’t you feel better?!
