June Abs and #Goalscheck linkup

First of all, I've just checked my posts and this post was scheduled to go on Monday morning.  Well, obviously it didn't happen so here ya go.  Better late than never right! lol

Monday's Scheduled Post


Since it's the last Monday in June I'm going to wrap up our Abs month with some of my favorite ab exercises.  I love ending up some of my running workouts by 5-10 minutes of continuous ab exercises. By the end of it, my abs are SCREAMING!

RUSSIAN TWIST




I usually do these for 30-60 secs as a rep.

SIDE PLANK


With a regular plank between this is a great balance AND abs exercise!  All my girlfriends that I've coached to do this exercise have come back to me and said how impressed they are with themselves for working into it.

DOLPHIN PLANK



I know this looks alot like the plank and it is a lot like a plank but this is called the Dolphin.  Instead of being on your hands in plank you are on your elbows with hands clasped.  Moving from this to downward facing dog works your abs like CRAZY!  You may have to shuffle your feet in some as you move from one to another.

BICYCLE CRUNCH


The constant switching of your elbow to knee and holding the abs in will BURN!  I will admit I tend to get lazy on this use my hands to help my neck but I always feel the burn.

TRIANGLE POSE WITH BIND

Each time I just can't believe it but my abs will be so sore after I do this move!


STABILITY BALL JACKKNIFE


This one is hard to keep your balance but boy does it pay off with your abs!

Love my yoga poses?

I am a yoga lover so please be sure to check out my past yoga abs moves!  But I have to put in my disclaimer that I am not a professional, just an avid practicer.

#Goalscheck Linkup

We have one more week before the 4th so we have to get our beach bodies ready!  I'm trying to pick some races to delve into and get ready for!
