Hey Purely Fit friends,
Ready to burn out those abs again with the purely twins?
Looks like many of us like to work the abs for ten minutes. Ten minutes feels just long enough to really work that mid-section. Or for those that have 12 minutes you can try out our 12 minutes to rock hard abs – this workout has some of our favorite moves.
One question we get asked frequently (which we know other trainers probably do as well), can you work the abs every day or is it better to just work them a few times a week?
Great question. And one that, again, depending on who you ask will give a different response. We feel doing planks every day is great for building up core strength. And for these other AB routines that we create could technically be done every day if you really wanted to, but you do not have to. We even know some people who don’t really “work” the abs and they have amazing abs. So it varies person to person. Even working the core indirectly (compound movements like squats and push-ups) are great for toning the stomach.
But for those that like to work their abs we’ve got the perfect KILLER 10 minute ab workout!
Here is the workout breakdown:
10 min ab routine- PFL 25 (click for printable) We suggest:
- A-fits (advanced peeps) : Use a heavy weight for the plank pulls. You can repeat this workout twice to really burn out the abs.
- B-fits (beginner peeps): Go at your own pace. Use light weights for the plank pulls. Do the push-ups on your knees.
Now it’s your time to workout with us!
We love working our abs! We love the strong feeling they provide us –> strong core –> helps us feel stronger inside and out. Working the abs in all different ways is a great way to help get some ab definition. We personally enjoy doing different types of ab workouts like this one and our plank workouts. They work the full body while working the core.
Remember getting abs is more than just “working” them every day. Need a clean diet. Some HIIT cardio.
Remember you cannot go back in time, you can only move forward. Begin your new journey today. It is NEVER too late to start a over. Remember to always #bepurelyyou and make each day count!
Twins Question: Do you like working your abs every day?
