A Week’s Worth of Workouts to Spring You into Shape! Monday: ABS
If you’re pressed for time and finding it difficult to get in a full workout every day, try these moves that you can squeeze in to your schedule anytime. It should only take 5-8 minutes at the most; and let’s face it who doesn’t have at least 5 minutes? When you do have the time, combine all of the moves from the full week (you’ll have them by next Saturday!) for one full workout.
The Hundred — lie on your back, lift your legs to 45 degrees, lift your head and neck, stretch your arms forward and pump them vigorously up and down five times on an inhale and five times on an exhale. Repeat 10 times until you’ve reached 100 arm pumps.
Single Leg Stretch — Next, pull your right leg in to your chest as you extend your left leg out. Then switch and pull your left leg in and extend your right leg out. Continue switching for eight to 10 reps with each leg movement counting as one rep.
Criss Cross — Finish up by placing your hands behind your head, elbows wide, and cross your elbow towards the opposite knee, continuing “criss-crossing” for eight to 10 reps.
