I always love to be able to put up a fitness vlog at least once a week.
These types of videos not only show you the workouts that I’m doing, but they also show you snippets of my life and the good (and bad) habits that have gotten me to this point.
In today’s fitness vlog, I’m focusing on my abs.
I’m doing this because, like I mentioned before, I have lost all of my baby weight.
I am now back to my pre-pregnancy size.
Now, I’m just working on restoring strength to the good ol muscles that fought the good fight of keeping my baby inside my body for a solid 40 weeks! haha it’s crazy even to me as I type that. Anyway, on to the vlog.
Exercises in this Fitness Vlog – Home Ab Workout
You’ll see two sets of ab workouts in this fitness vlog.
The first ab workout contains the following exercises:
- Sitting twists (aka russian twists)
- Reverse crunches
- Flutter kicks
- Leg raises
- Raised leg circles
For each of these ab exercises, I did 10 reps, 7 sets, 2 minutes of rest between each set.
Making 70 total reps of each exercise. YIKES! That sounds like A LOT of work but in reality, it really didn’t feel like it.
Taking a break between sets really helps. It also helped to listen to some mind-pumping music on my Spotify to keep the adrenaline going.
Side note: to be honest, I don’t always listen to music when I workout.
99% of the time, I’m listening to Motivational Speeches where they tell me I’m the shnizit and a bag of chips. Don’t judge me. You gotta do what you gotta do to get through these ab workouts!
The second set of exercises in this fitness vlog are as follows:
- Plank leg raises
- Body saw
- Side planks
- Up and down planks
For each of these ab exercises, I did a minimum of 10 reps each, 7 sets, with 2 minutes between sets.
Quick note on the up and down planks: the last time I did this exercise, I ended up bruising my elbows on the carpet.
So if you’re doing them, I highly recommend either a nice plush blanket or using an exercise mat.
