Well hello again daydreamers!
Last week I was on a mission, not only to get back into some writing, but also to dive back into a workout routine. With a long commute and responsibilities at home, I was finding it tough getting to the gym, especially if I had running around to do once I got home!
So here is what I came up with. Monday, Wednesday, Friday (if I can or Saturday) I have been going down to our gym doing 20 to 25 minutes of cardio, then all legs and lower back. On Tuesday and Thursday, I stay in the apartment and do abs. I really want to work on toning up and having a six pack…clearly! So this is my routine. High reps for multiple ab moves, each week I will be increasing my reps by 5.
Here’s what I do (these are the numbers I began with on day 1!):
- Basic crunch: 50
- Cross over crunch: 25 per side
- Oblique raises: 20
- Lower ab scissors: 15 each side
- Push ups: 25
- Plank: 30 seconds
The first time I went through this it took about 20 minutes to complete, I have increased the reps by five and starting today will be up 10 more. This is a great way to spend 20-30 minutes and I can definitely feel the results the following day! It is all about what works for you and your life style! I will keep you all updated on my results and will go through my lower body routine next week!
