This workout is a beast for your lower abs. First you get down as if you are going to do a push-up with your feet on the ball. (as seen in the picture) Then you lift your leg one by one as you balance yourself so you don't fall over. Be sure to keep your belly tight to protect your lower back. Make sure you use good form to feel the results. I did 20 reps at 3 sets. Have fun and be safe.
Lie on your back with the exercise ball between your legs.(As the pictures shows to your left) Squeeze the ball with your feet lower the ball down and bring it back up. Touch the ball and start counting or you can take it (as the second picture shows) I also did 3 sets at 20 reps. If you want these can be two separate exercises.You don't have to go crazy with how many you can do. If you get to 20 - 25 that is more then enough you should start feeling it by now. Switch it up the only way to a six pack is variety of your workouts you do for your stomach.
This workout is the same as above you are just on your side. Now you will be working on squeezing your legs and butt together to get your obliques the best workout yet. I did again the same reps and sets as the other two exercise 3 sets at 20-25 reps. Only lift as high as you can don't over do it as you can cause strain on your lower back. Make sure you squeeze your legs together to get your oblique engage. It will also work your inner thighs.
This is all about Balance here as you can see from the picture. It is just a regular crunch just on the exercise ball. Go down and come back up I stayed with 3 sets at 45 reps. My abs were on fire this morning at 5am.
My road to a six pack by October 2013 is hard. I'm not going to lie it is much easier to do nothing. I love looking at myself in the mirror everyday to see the changes in my body. I can now start to see a difference in my arms and belly. It just motivates me more to keep going not to mention the great support I get from my hubby who has been my personal trainer. We lean on each other but at times I hate him because he pushes me to the point of no return when working out. I love it!
On another not Happy Birthday to my wonderful hubby who turns 29 today. You are one in a million.
