Looking for a quick move to add to your workout routine? Try this bicycle move that will target your abdomen:
While lying on the floor, press lower back to the ground, lift shoulder blades, and lace fingers behind your head.
Bring knees up to approximately a 45 degree angle and preform a bicycle pedal motion, alternately straightening your legs.
Touch left elbow to right knee, then right elbow to left knee.
Complete 3 sets of 15-20 reps.
Add this classic move to your workout routine for an all-around body burner:
While lying face down, place forearms on the floor, with either palms face down or hands together.
Raise off the ground onto toes and elbows, firing your glutes.
Keep back flat by engaging abdominal muscles, and be sure to not raise your rear or sag your middle to the ground.
Hold for 30-60 seconds, repeating 1-3 times.
Stand on a sturdy elevated surface (like a stair) with your heels hanging off the edge and your feet slightly wider than shoulder-width apart. You may want to place your hands on your hips or a sturdy object in front of you to help with balance.
Raise your body up onto your toes, hold for a few seconds, and lower back down slowly.
First: complete the exercise with your toes pointing forward.
Second: complete the exercise with your toes pointing outward at an angle and your heels facing towards each other.
Third: complete the exercise with your feet shoulder width apart, toes still pointing outward at an angle.
Complete 3 sets of 10 reps for each toe position.
Standing upright holding hand weights of your choice (5 lbs is a good amount to start with), bend forward to form a 90 degree angle with your body.
Make your upper arms parallel with the floor, bending at the elbow.
Extend arms until straight and then return to the starting position. Be careful not to swing and use momentum to move during these movements. Instead, use only your muscle strength to complete slow, fluid movements.
Complete 3 sets of 15 reps (1 rep being from starting position back to starting position).
Lie on your left side, with your left elbow bent, cradling your head in your hand, and keeping your legs straight.
Brace yourself with your right hand, palm down on the floor or mat.
Raise your right leg as high as you can (this should take approximately 1 second) without moving any other part of your body, leaving your left leg firmly placed on the floor or mat. Pause for 2-3 seconds, lower your leg back down (this should take approximately 3 seconds).
