Quick Weekend Ab Workout

Fitting in workouts on the weekend will make your weekends more complete and make you feel great when you are relaxing with your friends and family.  I am going to bike to Woodinville from Seattle with my husband today (and taste wine after:)), so I wanted to get a quick ab workout in this morning before we go.  I just completed the following workout and my abs feel tight and ready for a fun day!  It takes about 10 minutes and you feel great after.

Weekend Ab Workout:

- 90 second plank (go as long as you can until you start shaking).
- Rotate from standard plank to side plank on each side.  Hold each plank for 10 seconds and repeat 5 times.
- Knee to elbow (Drive opposite knee up to opposite elbow and tighten abs during movement) switch legs and repeat 20 times.
- 40 traditional crunches
- 40 bicycle crunches
- 20 leg raises (lay on back, place hands under your buttom, raise legs to a 90 degrees, lower legs and lift back up, repeat).
- 20 toe touches (standing, bring leg up and touch your toe with your opposite arm).
- 60 second plank

Just do it and enjoy the 3-day weekend!
