The Muscle Group We Hate the Most: Abs

Does this picture make you cringe?  I always hear people say they hate sit ups and they hate working out their stomachs in general.  I'm not saying it's my favorite thing to do ever (eating ice cream would rank much higher than ab exercises believe me) BUT I know they are important and honestly after a hard ab workout I feel more "worked out" than when I am working out any other muscle group.

Lately I have been hooked on Bodyrock.tv.  I love the intensity of the workouts and that it shows you exactly what to do and how long to do it.  (It also isn't a bad thing that they all have awesome accents) Anyways CHECK IT OUT and get to working those abs.  

Here is what I've been doing!

Bodyrock Ab Routine

If Bodyrock is a little too intense for you at least decide to put in a good 12-15 minutes of ab work a day.  I mean if your abs are strong and healthy you have less back pain, you are burning more calories even at rest AND you have more confidence without that extra bulge a few ab exercises a week could help tame.

Here is a list of links to some of my favorite ab exercise routines.

Abs 1
Abs 2
Abs 3 (Stability Ball workout)
Abs 4

So click on one of these and get fitter.  You can't improve your health or your body if you don't put the effort in.  So get motivated and get your fitness on!!!

(Also a little tip that helps to keep my stomach flat...Whenever I am working out another muscle group or even just sitting at my desk at work, I try to keep my abs engaged meaning they are tight.  I use every workout as an ab workout too simply because I tighten my core up while exercising!! Try it!)

Xoxo,

    responses on "The Muscle Group We Hate the Most: Abs". I do have some questions for you if it's allright. Could it be simply me or do some of these comments appear like they are coming from brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are writing at other sites, I'd like to keep up with you.

  31. When you’re ready to unwind after a long day, there’s nothing as relaxing as lying back and soaking in the tub. When you’re ready to fill up the tub, you’ll want it done properly and in style. That’s why the tub isn’t a tub until you’ve considered what type of bathtub tap to add.http://www.plumpinguk.co.uk/bath-taps.html

    When shopping for a new bathtub tap (also sometimes referred to as Roman tub fillers), keep in mind that they’re typically offered in the lighter finishes (like chrome and nickel tones), but there are a few exceptions. Also, you probably won’t need to worry too much about spout reach if your tub can already accommodate a bathtub tap. Also, many models include a hand shower as an added convenience.
