This is my routine.  Remember if there is pain, stop!  Never strain your back or neck for any of these.  Give it a try and see if it works for you.  I try to do this routine 3 - 4 times per day.  Gets the blood pumping and the abs tightening!  ENJOY!

  • Straight Crunches - 25.  For an extra challenge raise your feet of the ground.

  • Leg lifts - 15.  Make sure to protect your back, only lift your legs as far as you feel comfortable.  The more you do the higher you will be able to lift

  • Bicycle - 50.  This is my Favorite.  Remember that left knee, right knee is a single count, so you are doing 25 per side!

  • Side Crunches - 25 per side, bring your left elbow toward your right knee and vice versa

  • Russian Twist - 20 in total.  Anchor your feet under the sofa, or another heavy object.  Lean back to engage your abs, hold your hands together out in front of you.  Twist from your core left to right, touching your fists to floor on either side of you. 

  • LAST ONE - Plank, hold for 30 seconds!  Make sure to protect your back, keep your body alignment and flat from your shoulders to to your bum.  If you find it hard to keep up on your toes, drop to your knees, but keep your abs tight and your back flat!!
