The BEST Summer Ab Workout to get ready for Swimsuit Season!

Sizzling Summer Abs Workout

  • Roll Ups – Start by laying on your back with your arms extended overhead and legs out straight. Engage your abs then flatten your lower back into the mat. Without using momentum, peel your spine off the mat, one vertebra at a time, pulling your belly button into your spine. Keep using your abs to sit all the way up and then reach towards your toes, making a C-curve with your spine. Slowly lower back down, keeping your heels glued to the mat, and repeat. The key is to make sure you roll SLOWLY through your spine, using your abs, and not “hoisting” yourself up with momentum. Repeat for 10 full roll downs.
  • V Sits – Lay on your back with your arms extended overhead and your legs straight. With control, and without hoisting yourself up, use your abs to lift and balance on your tailbone, reaching your arms towards your feet. Make sure to lift your chest and keep your back straight. Lower back down SLOWLY, and then repeat 15 times.
  • Oblique Twists – Come all the way up into your V Sit and hold it there, balancing on your tailbone. Clasp your hands together and then twist hold arms out to the RIGHT, Use the obliques to twist to the other side, and continue twisting for 20 repetitions total.
  • Corkscrews – Still on your back, then raise yourself up onto your elbows, lifting your chest and keeping your back straight. Bring your legs straight up to the ceiling and engage your abs. Keeping your legs and spine straight, then begin to draw a circle with your legs. Lower them down and to the RIGHT. Once you hit the bottom, use the obliques to finish drawing the circle and pull the legs up on the LEFT side. At the time, reverse and draw the circle in the other directions. Complete 10 circles in each direction.
  • Leg Lowers – Lay all the way back, then straighten both legs up to the sky to engage your lower abs. Pull the abs tight, then lower both legs towards a 45 degree position. Don’t let your lower back arch, so make sure to really keep those abs tight. Stop as soon as you start to feel the abs shake, and PULL those abs in to lift the legs back up. Repeat 15 times.
  • Twisting Tummy Tucks – Come up into a plank position on your hands. Then keep your shoulders steady as you lift your RIGHT leg and bring the RIGHT knee in towards your LEFT elbow. Extend the leg back out straight, squeezing the booty as you lift, then bring it back in towards your RIGHT elbow, and extend the leg back down. Repeat with the LEFT leg, first crossing it to the opposite elbow, then extending back, then bringing it to the same side elbow. Focus on those obliques, and staying strong. Complete 10 repetitions on each side.
