Workout Week Get Your Fitness On!

This week, we decided to share our most effective ab workout to the readers at home. This simple yet extremely effective workout will help all you women out there achieve the stomachs you always dreamed about. Working out isn't always fun (we definitely know that!) but it increases your energy and stamina that you'll need for the rest of the day. (Especially for those rug rats running around.) So, take just 10 minutes out of your day to perform this exercise and in just a few short weeks you'll see breathtaking results!!!

Bicycle Exercise

How to:

Lie flat on the floor with your lower back pressed to the ground. Put your hands beside your head. Bring knees up to about 45- degree angle and slowly go through a bicycle pedal motion. Touch your left elbow to your right knee, then your right elbow to your left knee. Keep even, relaxed breathing throughout.
  1. Lie on the floor and lace your fingers behind your head.
  2. Bring the knees in towards the chest and lift the shoulder blades off the floor without pulling on the neck.
  3. Straighten the left leg out while simultaneously turning the upper body to the right, taking the left elbow towards the right knee.
  4. Switch sides, bringing the right elbow towards the left knee.
  5. Continue alternating sides in a 'pedaling' motion for 1-3 sets of 12-16 reps.

Not only do these workouts help build strength and provide extra energy, they strengthen your core and protect your spine. This week, we will be providing you with more exercise information, so stay tuned and tone up!!
