burpee

 

I know this is your least favorite exercise… It can be quite brutal, but it gives you serious results. Burpees work out your abs, arms, chest and legs. It’s the ultimate full-body exercise. So the next time you’re at the gym, don’t slack on your burpees.

Start from a squat position with your arms in front of you. Push your legs back into a push-up stance, and immediately come back up into a squat. Then jump up high and land back down into squat, and repeat. Do as many as you can in 1 minute, rest for 30 seconds, then repeat for 2 more sets.

5. Leg Raises

Leg Raise

 

This is on every trainer’s top list of ab workouts. Leg raises concentrate on the lower abdominal (yes, that little pouch you see when you’re wearing a tight dress), and hip flexors.

Place your hands under your glutes with your palms facing down. Keep your legs as straight as possible. Then raise your legs slowly until they’re perpendicular to the floor. Hold at the top for a second, then slowly lower your legs back to the start position. Do 3 sets of 15 reps. You can add a dumbbell between your feet for added resistance.

Good luck and I can’t wait to see your fabulous Summer bodies! What are your go-to ab moves?
