Ab Routine

Sunday, May 4, 2008

After complaining on this here blog about how I wasn't getting a good ab workout on The 30 Day Shred, my good friend Izzy, who is always wanting the best for my abs, sent me this:

A1 - 3 x 15 Jackknife

A2 - 3 x 16 Wiper Raises
  • You're on your back, leg straight up at a 90 degree angle you let them fall to one side and bring them back up always keeping your legs straight and the 90 degree angle you do 16 on each side.
A3 - Leg and Hip Raises Combo
  • On your back, legs straight on the floor, bring your leg up to a 90 degree angle while keeping them straight. When you've reach that point, lift your hips off the floor - like you would with a regular hip raise - lower your hips, then your legs and start over again.
  • You do a regular plank for 30 sec. then you turn to your side and do a side plank for 30 sec back to a regular plank for 30 sec and other side plank for 30 and back to center for another 30.

Here's what the entire ab workout should look like:
  • A1 (15x), wait 30 sec
  • A2 (16x) wait 30 sec
  • A3 (15x) and wait 60 sec
  • REPEAT two more times
  • Plank combo (once)
Lest you think that my dear friend Izzy doesn't know what she's talking about, how's about you check her out! (We designed her website, too!)

I’m Stephanie - wife to one extremely handsome cop; mother to two extremely silly kids. The hubs and I have been married since February ’99. I love him more each day and simply can’t get enough of him. My daughter, Ashton, is 12 going on 17. She’s beautiful, creative, smart, and oh, so sassy. Taylor, our son, is 8 and is so much like his daddy it’s scary. He makes me laugh all the time with the silly things he says and does. He won’t remember what you told him 5 minutes from now, just like his daddy. I love to laugh and spend time with friends and family. I’ve also recently discovered a love for cooking and enjoy sharing recipes. I love finding new blog friends, so be sure to leave a comment so I can do the same!
