If you're wanting to tone up your midsection, it can be as simple as doing a quick workout from home a few times a week! Start with these and add more workouts as you can, and don't short yourself on reps! It sounds cliche but you WANT to feel that burn!!
Bicycles- Lay on your back, both hands on the back of your head, elbows out. Holding feet straight out but not touching the floor, bring your left elbow to your right knee, keeping your left leg straight, and alternate- right elbow to left knee, and repeat. 3 sets of 20!
Shoulder Taps- Start in plank position on hands, arms straight. Holding position, core tight, bring your right hand up and tap your left shoulder, and replace that hand to the floor returning you to plank position. Then repeat with your left hand to right shoulder and return.
3 sets of 25!
Bridge- Laying on your back with your knees bent and arms down to your side, push through your feet to bring your body to a flat position with your shoulders and feet on the floor, lower back and bum off of the floor! Lower back down to starting position for 1 rep!
3 sets of 20!
Side Plank Hip Abduction- Start on your side with your right forearm flat on the floor and the outside of your right foot on the floor, with your hips up off the floor, your body in a straight line. Keeping your core tight, raise your left leg towards the ceiling, and keeping control, lower it back onto your other leg.
3 sets of 20 (each leg)!
Scissor Kicks- Laying flat on your back with your arms down to your side, lift your feet six inches off the floor. Simultaneously lift your left foot and lower your right, and then continuously switch back and forth in a scissoring motion!
3 sets of 30 (each switch = one rep)
Do these simple exercises consistently a few times a week and see how your core starts to strengthen and tone!
With love and a little kick in the ass,
