Hello friends!!!!! It ‘s been a week at least of not posting anything here on my blog and I’ve missed all of you!! I’m not mentally back on my regular routine yet but (hey) can’t complain about my vacation and I’m glad I’m back to writing again. I needed that vacation so much and I’m happy I’ve spent it with my family.
10 days for sure was a short time but seeing lots of beautiful places and trying out new food is a lot when you come to think of it. Buffet for breakfast, heavy lunch, and savory dinner was definitely one of the highlights of our trip and for sure by now, you’ve already guessed what I’m about to share – My Ab Workout
Yes! – you read it right – with all the food I ate on that trip, I really can’t miss out on my ab exercise. It was hard for me to hit the gym while I was on vacation that’s why I’m slowly getting back to my workout hence this post I want to share with you all to remind me that I need to work extra hard 🤣.
Workout 1 – Plate Pass
This one is my favorite exercise because it ‘s just fun and helps my core a lot. Basically, you have to start in hollow position with your back on the mat, your head must be an inch away from the floor and your legs raised 90 degrees. Grab a 2.5 or 5 lb plate and put it over your head with your arms raised, slowly bring it to your knee and slowly stretched your legs down with an inch away from the floor without the plate falling. Repeat this for 30 seconds and rest for 30 seconds to complete one set. I do this 5 times.
Workout 2 – Crunches
I know you all know how to do this but basically you have to have your back on the mat with your legs bent 90 degrees then slowly curl your chest up squeezing your abdomen towards your knees, keeping your feet firm on the ground. I do this 20 times for 5 sets or for 30 seconds and resting for another 30 seconds repeating the cycle 5 times.
Workout 3 – Bicycle Crunch
This exercise is pretty common as well but basically instead of doing a regular crunch, you have to switch raising your legs up to your chest with opposite elbows meeting your knees while doing a bicycle ride position. Repeat the exercise for 30 seconds and rest for another 30 seconds and complete 5 sets.
Workout 4 – Criscross Jump + Spiderman Crunch
This next exercise is very easy to do but you can definitely feel the pain after 2 sets. What I do here is go on a plank position and start the set by cross jumping my feet 2 times then pull my legs toward my chest alternately to a spiderman crunch. Again, I do this for 30 seconds and rest another 30 seconds and repeat it 5 times.
Workout 5 – Flutterkick
This exercise may seem to be the easiest but I am not a fan (why?) because it is so darn hard and painful!!!! But I do this anyway because it targets the lower ab and helps me tone my muffin top lol. But basically you do this on a lying position with your legs raised about 2 inches from the floor and alternately stacking your feet on top of each other. I do this around 20 reps of 5 sets or 30 seconds and resting for 30 seconds again 5 times.
I love it that I’m still able to do this exercise despite me being in a food coma for 10 days. These is my current go to ab workout and I’m loving it. Tbh though, I know that I am not the best person to follow in terms of exercising but I still want to share with all of you what I do and what helped me at least be productive and take care of my own body. These are the steps that I feel comfortable doing and seeing results of.
Feel free to try my routine but always be careful and modify it in terms of what your body needs. I hope that you all learn a thing or two and I am so happy to be back!
‘Till my next one 😘
