DIE HARD AB CIRCUIT

19 Sep

Is it just me or does this week seem neverending!  I am so looking forward to the weekend.  I need a day to get caught up on everything (including sleep).  I just feel like I’m playing catch-up these days.

Get ready for today’s ab circuit.  I did this workout on Monday and by Tuesday it hurt to cough or laugh.

DIE HARD AB CIRCUIT

The workout is broken down into 4 circuits. Finish each circuit before moving on to the next

CIRCUIT 1

Perform each exercise in CIrcuit 1 for 30 seconds.  Rest for 20  seconds and then repeat the circuit but perform each exercise for 45 seconds.

1. Table top while hovering the knees off the ground: Do just as the title says.  While in a table top position, raise knees slightly off the ground.  Pull your belly button towards your spine while doing this exercise to get maximum benefit.
