Sometimes you only have a few minutes to bust out a workout, and this ab routine is seriously perfect to do in a flash at home. Here’s the best way to flatten your mommy belly with this routine:
Perform each move for 60 seconds and rest for 10 seconds in between each move.
Complete as many reps as you can in each 60-second interval, making sure to keep proper form. Do not sacrifice form in order to complete more reps.
Keep your core engaged (belly button into spine), and add weights or resistance to any move when you need a challenge.
Get ready to burn some serious belly fat!
Reverse Crunch: Laying on your back keep your knees bent, arms on your sides and take a band and hold one end each in each hand. The band should be wrapped around your shin top. Raise your knees to the chest until the hips are off the floor. Remain in this position for 3 seconds before lowering to the beginning position.
Scissor Kick: Laying on your back keep place your hands behind the head. Keep your abs tight and lift your left knee to touch the right elbow. Go back to the beginning position, raise your right knee, and touch it with left elbow.
Russian twists: Grab two dumbbells and sit down with your knees slightly bent and your heels on the ground. Lean back slightly, keeping your core tight, and lift your heels about an inch off the ground. From here, twist your torso to the right bringing the dumbbells with you. Pause for a moment and then twist your torso to the left side, bringing the dumbbells with you again. Alternate back and forth until the 20 seconds is up.
Situps: Lie flat on your back with your knees slightly bent and legs fixed. Lock your hands together behind your head. Breathe out while elevating your upper body until it creates a V-shape with your thighs. Wait for a second, then lower your upper body back down, inhaling. This is one rep.
Bicycle Crunch: From the starting position, keep your right leg extended so that it is hovering above the floor, and bring your left knee into your chest. Immediately after you’ve brought your left knee to your chest, extend your left leg completely so that it is straight and hovering above the floor. Bring your right knee into your chest (in a pedaling motion.) While your legs are pedaling, incorporate a twist in the upper body, meeting the knee at your chest with the opposite elbow (e.g. as you bring your left knee to your chest, twist your upper body to the right so that your right elbow touches your left knee.)
Flutter Kick: Get into the same position as the V hold starting position, lower both of your legs until your about 1 foot up top of the mat place your hands on each side of your body. Make sure your back is straight and begin to move both of your legs up and down while one is up the other should be down, perform this for one minute. Go directly to Modified Lower-Back Bends.
Laying on your side preferably on a mat with your legs extended out. Place your hands behind your head. Lift both feet off the floor and lift your head and shoulders off the floor
Rest for 10-20 seconds, and if time allows, repeat the sequence a second time through for a 20-minute sizzler!
