Busy Parent Fitness Challenge - Day 4: Abs (30-30-30)

by - Tuesday, October 21, 2014

We hiked today and I didn't get the chance to post this during the day. So sorry! Let's do an ab workout while we watch tv. 

1) 30 crunches - Take a break every 10 crunches if you need to. Remember to support your neck with your hands.

Crunch - start position
Support your neck as you raise your upper body
2) 30 hip raises - These are strengthening and will also stretch out the muscles you worked when crunching.

Hip Raise - start position
Lift and squeeze
3) 30 lying leg raises (how to:http://www.muscleandfitness.com/workouts/abs-exercises/tone-your-abs-lying-leg-raise) - love them or hate them, they are effective!

Raise your legs and bottom, tuck hands below your hips for support
Lower your legs slowly keeping ankles flexed
Take a moment and repeat
How did you do? Were you able to do 30 of each exercise? Check in with me. I love comments on the blog, Twitter (@playoutsidegal), and Facebook (www.facebook.com/PlayOutsideGuide).
