Your 2 Minute Exercise of the Day!

Tuesday, April 02, 2013

The sun is shining, the weather is warming up and we are officially ready for summer - but we will take spring! With the beach and bikinis on our mind, today we taking the opportunity to tone our abs with today's two minute exercise of the day. Today we are specifically targeting our obliques to trade in those love handles for a fit & skinny mid-section.

And the clock starts now ...

30 bicycle crunches (knee to alternate elbow & switch)
30 twist crunches (hold a crunch position and twist from side to side touching the ground with the opposite arm)
30 oblique crunches on each side (bend your knees, rest them to one side & crunch!)
30 scissor kicks (alternate one leg straight & one leg extended out a couple inches off the ground)
30 in & out crunches (crunch in then extend your legs out keeping them a couple inches off the ground)

Done! Feel free to repeat :) And don't forget to start every morning with 30 sit-ups (it takes under a minute, no excuses!) first thing when you wake up. We switch up the type of sit-up we do to keep our muscles guessing but it's a great way to get motivated & the perfect start to a skinny day!
