Here is the thing: no matter how much, how long and how intense your everyday exercising is, you won’t be able to see any results unless you maintain appropriate diet!!! Period!. It’s been my issue since I came back from New York. I eat more than I should and then I torture myself on a treadmill or hiking in the mountains or something else. I need motivation on that end 😦 Anyone has any tips??
Today I focused my entire workout just on abs! It was short but hard. I started with some cardio segment. I warmed up with a 2 min. round on a jump rope and 30 sec. mountain climbers. Later I did 2 sets of abs exercises. To make it as hard as possible, I used weights and ankle weights for most of them. Here is a breakdown:
1. Basic crunch on a swiss ball – 20 reps with weights
2. Obliques crunches on a ball – 20 on each side
3. Reverse crunch – 15 reps
4. Bicycle – 20 reps with weights
5. Leg lifts – 20 reps
