As many of you know, I’ve been on a bit of a health kick lately. I run on the treadmill 5+ times a week, I try to squeeze in one of these fantastic at-home yoga workouts whenever possible, I eat relatively healthy foods, and I’ve been doing these quick and easy butt and thigh workouts after lunch most afternoons.
(I’m so much fun these days, aren’t I??!)
Overall, this change in lifestyle has been really good for me. I have more energy, I’m sleeping better, my clothes fit me, and I like what I see when I look in the mirror, but while I’m not one to sit and dwell on my imperfections (spoiler alert: I’m lying), I really wish I could find the motivation to add an ab workout to my routine.
The only problem is that sit-ups make me want to cry, so I have avoided them like the plague since before I can remember, but after a friend lent me Jackie Warner’s Personal Training with Jackie: Crunch-Free Xtreme Abs workout video a couple of weeks ago, I realized it was possible to target my abs without doing 1,000 sit-ups a day.
So a couple of nights ago I decided to poke around on YouTube to see if I could find any other at-home ab workouts I could stomach, and I ended up finding LOADS. As it turns out, crunch-free ab workouts are a THING these days, and this Standing Abs Workout by FitnessBlender is by far my favorite.
It really targets my problem areas without making me scream out in pain, and since it only takes 10 minutes to do, I can easily squeeze it into my busy day. And I’m seeing results! Give it a try and let me know what you think!
