You’ve got that cute face, now let’s work on that little waist! Abs are muscles that can be worked out everyday so here’s a list of exercises that will help you define them.
Always stretch first and stay hydrated, but it’s also good to get a nice warm up in before you start your actual workout routine. You don’t have to run a whole mile or do a whole hour of cardio, but it would be highly beneficial for fat burning if you were to get your heart rate going before you began so start by jogging in place for a couple minutes, or go for a run, whichever you prefer. I just like to workout in my bedroom in running shoes and skivvies because it’s more comfortable fore me that way. Which is why I don’t frequent the gym!
After you’ve warmed up lay a towel or yoga mat down to do your crunches and 100 on.
-20 Reverse Crunches (if you don’t know how to do a reverse crunch fear not it’s simple…sit with your legs bent at the knees and slightly wider than hip’s width apart, raise your hands out straight in front of you for balance and then slowly sink back into the reverse crunch, but don’t lay all the way down…the further down you go the harder you’ll be working out to get up.)
-Pilates 100 (to do the Pilates 100 simply lay on your back, raise your legs straight up into the air above you so that your body is creating a 90 degree angle, then lower your legs slightly so that they are suspended at a 45 degree angle, from there, and keeping your arms straight as if you’re trying to reach past your booty lift your shoulders off the floor and into a crunch, now hold that position and begin pumping your arms slightly. Pump your arms 100 times, that is the Pilates 100.)
-20 Bicycle Crunches
-20 Standing Side Crunches (perform 10 on each side.)
-4 Pilates Double Leg Circles (2 each way.) The Pilates Double Leg Circle is simple, but hard to do so you only have to do a few of them for it to be effective. (to do the Double Leg Circle lay down on your back and raise your legs in the air at a 90 degree angle again, then keeping your legs and ankles together move your legs in a large wide circle around your body, repeat in the opposite direction.)
Repeat each set of exercises 3 times. Share your progress with us by tagging your photos with #thebeautythesis and by @ tagging us (@the_beauty_thesis).
