Workout Of The Month

It’s that time of the year when many of us try to get away from the cold Canadian weather and head to someplace warm! This means bringing out that bikini again that we opted to put away in August. This can be a scary time for most of us, but don’t fret – we have an ab workout that will do the trick!

The structure of the workout consists of a warm up, 2 separate circuits with short rests in between, and then a cool down with an upper body stretch routine.

Follow us along on our journey for flat abs:

Warm up for 1-3 minutes (march on the spot, jog, jumping jacks, walk, etc.)

Circuit One
(Complete as many times as you can within 7 minutes)

  • 15 push ups (on knees)
  • 15 straight leg raises
  • 15 toe taps
  • Plank for 30 seconds

Break: 30-90 seconds

Circuit Two
(Complete as many times as you can within 7 minutes)

  • 15 lay down push ups (on knees)
  • 15 straight leg sit ups
  • 15 tricep dips
  • 30 ab bikes (15 per side)

Break: 30-90 seconds

Repeat this routine one more time for a total of 28 minutes. Don’t forget to cool down and stretch!
