10 minutes Abs routines!


Summer time is here and we need to show a toned and well-defined mid-section. I will teach you how to achieve great abs in only 10 minutes everyday. These exercises are part of my Pilates mat routines, my clients love these effective and easy firmers . Remember,if you want to see results don’t skip a day!
This week I will post one exercise everyday so by the end of the week you will have 5 exercises to blast your abdominals!
Exercise One
TABLE TOP ABDOMINALS
1-Lie on your back with your head resting on a rolled towel, your knees bent and your feet on the floor.Keep your arms resting on the floor.
2-Pull your stomach and your ribs in and raise both legs off the floor to table top position (knees and hips in a 90 degree angle) You can bring your hands over your tummy so you can feel your abdominals working.
3-From there, inhale and straighten both legs up to the ceiling, squeezing your thighs and using your abs to keep your back flat on the floor, exhale and come back to the table top position.
4- Repeat the exercise 10 times, do 3 sets (30 in total).Rest in between the sets.
VARIATION:
1- Start in the same position,bring both legs to the table top position and move one leg on top of the other.
2-Pull your stomach and your ribs in, inhale and straighten both legs up to the ceiling squeezing your inner thighs together, exhale as you come back to table top.
3-Repeat the exercise 10 reps, do 2 sets with the same side leg. Rest in between the sets.
4-Repeat the exercise with the opposite leg, do 2 sets, 10 reps each.Rest in between the sets.
