Getting ready for the bikini summer season it’s not easy at all. That’s why you want your ab routine to be nice, quick and short so that you can fit it easy into your daily schedule. So today I’m gonna show you a really quick ab routine that you can do every single day without any equipment needed.
We’re gonna really working out that lower abs, which is the hardest part of the body to work. With these exercises we’re gonna truly tone up that area. So prepare to set your abs on fire!
Bodyweight Ab Routine
After every exercise we’re going straight to the next one to constantly working out the ab muscles. So try to not have too much rest in between. Also have some water by your side if you need to.
1. Leg Lift
This ab routine is really simple but it’s also extremely effective. Lie down on your mat with your legs off the floor and try to keep them off throughout the entire exercise. You just need to extend the legs up, push them down through and then extend them up to the ceiling. Do these nice, slow and controlled movements for 30 seconds.
2. Flutter Kicks
You’ll need to move your legs up and down for 30 seconds without touching the floor. You will feel your lower abs on fire, but this is the whole point of this ab routine, right? For this ab routine speed is important, so you need to move your legs as fast as you can.
3. Scissor Kicks
Just cross one leg over the other at a distance from floor as small as possible. Do not touch the floor. If you’re finding it too hard, you can take your legs up higher and then just slowly taking it down. Really feel those lower abs working. It’s just 30 seconds, anyone can do this!
4. Suitcase Crunch
Lie down on your back and prepare for a classic crunch. Instead of bringing in the upper body only, you need to bring in your knees too, at the same time. Again, this exercise will last just 30 seconds so give out your best.
5. Full Sit Ups
Starting in the same position as in the previous exercise, just come up to sitting. Gently lie back down then sit up again for 30 seconds straight. You may find it that you can do only 3-4 of these, but if you do this workout every single day you’ll be able to add another one each time.
6. Double Side Leg Lifts
Let’s take it onto your side. You don’t need to be flat out, just bring your legs at a 45 degree angle. Now lift your legs up and down for 30 seconds and then switch sides for another half minute.
7. Mountain Climbers
Start from the plank position and bring your knees one by one towards your chest. You can take it in slow or really quicker, but just make sure that you are engaging those core muscles for 30 seconds straight.
8. Reverse Crunches
Sit down on your butt, with your hands behind your head and your legs off the floor. Extend your legs out and bring them in without touching the floor for 30 seconds.
Keep your tummy pulled in and your elbows underneath your shoulders. If you put your legs a little bit wider than your back you’ll have more support. Stay into the plank position for as long as you can, but make sure it’s more than 30 seconds.
The more you do this ab routine, the easier you’re gonna find it. So keep working your abs for the bikini season and don’t forget to share it with your friends if you enjoyed it. Stay fit!
