And here is the 8 Min Abs Workout!
This workout has been designed to specifically work on the abdominal area.
It can be done by anyone who exercises regularly, both men and women. There are no particular requirements for this circuit; you just need to know how to do the various exercises properly.
3 Good reasons for doing this circuit:
- Working aerobically on your abdominal muscles for over 7 minutes stimulates the capillaries in this area. These in turn increase the blood flow.
- A greater blood flow means a greater flow of oxygen - and fat only burns in the presence of oxygen.
- Toned muscles need more calories (kcal) to stay active. Our organism tends to release these calories from the area nearest the muscle, in this case the waist area.
30 seconds per exercise and take 30 seconds at the end of each circuit:
- Forward crunch
- Oblique side crunch
- Leg & Hip raises (both exercise in 1)
- Standing pike crunch
- Lying lateral crunch
