We all want to tone our stomachs. But we also understand your frustration at not seeing results after your 50th consecutive day of 200 crunches. But this ab exercise routine is fast and effective and works in all areas of your abdomen, so there is no excuse not to do it!
So it’s time to stop neglecting ab day, ladies!
And the best part is that this routine is crunch-free and also that this exercise will only take you eight minutes. But what we guarantee is that you’ll feel more after these eight minutes than you do after your series of mindless crunches.
So complete each move in one minute, doing as many repetitions as you can in that one minute period and then move directly to the next move without a break. After the last exercise, you should rest for one minute and then repeat the whole sequence once more for an effective eight-minute
total body workout.
- Side Plank Super Crunch
First, you need to start in a low plank position with your body in a straight line. Then your elbows bent and under your shoulders and with your feet hip-width apart. You need to bring your right knee to your right elbow and then extend your right leg back and return to the starting position.
You need to repeat on the left side.
- Alternating Toe Touches
You need to lie on your back holding a dumbbell, and lift your legs until they’re perpendicular to the floor. And then extend your arms, lift your shoulders off the floor and try touching your feet with the dumbbell.
Then you need to return to the starting position and repeat.
- Boat Crunch
First, you need to sit down on a mat with your knees bent, extend your arms out to the sides and lift your feet off the floor. Then you need to twist your torso to the right, and then reverse the motion, twisting it to the left.
You need to repeat this movement until the set is complete.
First lie on your belly, with your arms and legs, fully extended and then lift both arms and legs off the floor, and hold for a count of 2.
Then return to the starting position and repeat.
This exercise may not look difficult, but after 20 or so seconds, your abs will be burning, so rest for a minute, grab a drink of water, and then gear up to repeat this series one more time through.
We hope you’re ready!
