Body Weight Challenge | Abs Exercise Guide

Hey there! Thanks for joining me for Day 2 of my Body Weight Blast Challenge! In today’s workout we are focusing on those abs. A strong core is so important for our balance and movement. Toning those abs doesn’t have to be hard. Eat clean, drink water, and train them at least once a week. You will see the most results by doing 6-7 ab exercise with little to no rest in between.

For this circuit, we are doing 20-40 seconds of each exercise (whatever is doable for you). Feel free to repeat the workout one or two more times and feel the burn! Please enjoy the 7-day challenge and share this with your friends & family that need a little more motivation.

Bicycle Crunches

1. Lie on a mat with your back pressed into the floor. And place your hands behind your head (without placing all the weight in your hands)

3. Now do the same thing on the other side and alternate back and forth.
