work your abs (I)

THE ABDOMINAL WORKOUT

Here are some ab exercises that you can do when you have 5 minutes of free time. To make the most of your ab workout, try to make sure you exhale on exertion (e.g. exhale as your crunch) and keep the core tight by pulling your belly button up and inwards (e.g. while planking). Below is a video to guide you through the ab workout – again I’ve used a tabata timer so this could be one round of tabata if you are doing a tabata workout! For the mommies – these are great to build your core strength post-pregnancy/labour (always make sure you are cleared for exercise with your health care practitioner).
