Ab Workouts

Posted: May 30, 2012 in cardio, exercise, fitness, food, Health, metabolism, nutrition, run, running, wellness, workout

Here is a basic AB workout that you can do around the house, early in the morning before work, or even right before bed. I typically do this workout about 10-15 minutes each session. Start off slow maybe about 3-5 minutes and increase by 1 minute each week. This ab workout can be done for all fitness levels, beginner, intermediate, or advanced.

This sample workout below  is in order of the different ab workouts in the video.

Sample Plan Week 1 :

Complete 2 rounds

  1. Crunches=1-2 minutes
  2. Rest=30 seconds
  3. Elevated leg crunch=1-2 minutes
  4. Break=30 seconds
  5. Leg raises=1-2  minutes
  6. Break=30 seconds
  7. Knew to elbows=1 minutes
  8. Rest=2 minutes and complete another round.

Good luck and provide feedback on your results!!

  2. any ideas for daily calisthenics routines? i miss the army days when i had a master trainer to shout me into discipline. at 46, i need that kind of push, but i will settle for direction and a suggested routine.

      @Mike and Brandy. Sure. I would say for me Squats are number 1 for a really good calisthenic workout. Air squats and jumping squats would def tone the body and whip you into shape. Also Chest workouts can be push ups, incline and decline push ups. You can do the incline/decline pushups on a bench or chair etc. And of course, to work the back chin ups, and pull ups will work the back out. Sample routine: 4 sets. 25 air squats, 15 pushups, 10 pull ups. 1 minute rest in between. As you advance more you can increase to jump air squats, incline/decline pushups, tricep push ups etc. Email ljayhealth@gmail.com for more info if needed. I hope this helps for now!

    Awesome ab work. L-Jay…inspiring. I do the crunches and extend and cross, 5 pound weights on each crunch and hold, Next crunch up, I cross the opposite arms. My upper and lower arms are looking good and adding weights seems to have made the crunch more efficient.

        Keep on banging the strength training drum…my running has gotten so much easier as I have been working with weights. And yes, L-Jay, GREEEEEN TEA…for the anti-oxidant, cleansing, healing, immune building rush. Make a big pot in the morning, ice it up all day.
