Wow Abs Now: Two-Week Ab Makeover Workout
Tighten up in two weeks with this killer ab toning workout with exercises that engage multiple muscles with every rep.
-The Scissors Crunch has 3 parts. First you're going to do 10 pulses just like this with knees bent. Then another 10 pulses with one leg straight. And your final 10 pulses with both legs extended and crossed, thighs squeezed together. You'll repeat the sequence one more time. To make this move harder after each set of crunches, do 30 pulses with your legs, keeping your upper body still. The trick to this move is to use your abs and not momentum to get into a sitting position. To make the move harder, extend your leg behind you as you come up. You're gonna do 10 reps on this side, switch sides, and repeat. Keep your abs tight as you go from Side Crunch to this modified Side Plank extending your arm and leg at the same time. You're going to do 30 reps on this side, switch sides, and repeat. This is a great way to turn up the tightening power of your regular plank. What you're gonna do is draw 10 clockwise circles with your hips. And when you're done, do 10 counterclockwise circles. Keep your knees wide and your heels together as you pulse up and down. To make this move harder, you're gonna lift your chest off the ground and reach your arms forward. Do 12 pulses. You can do the Side Plank with leg lift one of two ways. The more challenging way shown here is to tap your knee first before extending the leg up. Make it easier by just lifting the leg up and down. You're going to do 15 reps on this side, switch sides, and repeat. Starting on all four, you're going to do a Side Crunch by bringing knee to elbow. Next, extend your leg behind you and up. Do 30 reps on this side, switch sides, and repeat. As you bring your left elbow and your right knee in together for a crunch, remember to drive your right elbow behind you. You're gonna do 20 reps on this side, switch sides, and repeat.
