7 Minute Abs
Welcome to 7 Minute Abs! Abs are all about consistency and balance. Everyone says abs are made in the kitchen. I think abs are made by a balanced, healthy lifestyle. You need to eat balanced AND strengthen the muscles to see a difference in your core!
I do abs everyday at the end of my workout! Lately me and my husband Jay have been doing this sequence where we will come together after our workouts and finish with 7 Minute Abs! Some days, abs are harder to do than others. But if you are consistent in doing abs, you will see a difference!

STRAIGHT CRUNCH: 1 minute
Lay on your back with your legs bent in the air. As you exhale flex your abs and bring your shoulder blades off the floor. I like looking at the ceiling, It helps keep the correct form.
RIGHT SIDE CRUNCH: 1 minute
Lay down on your left side. Twist your upper body towards your right side. As you exhale flex your right obliques and lift your shoulders off the ground.
LEFT SIDE CRUNCH: 1 minute
Lay down on your right side. Twist your upper body towards your left side. As you exhale flex your left obliques and lift your shoulders off the ground.
5 REVERSE CRUNCHES + 5 SECOND HOLD (alternating): 2 minutes
For two minutes you will alternate 2 different exercises.
First, 5 straight leg reverse crunches. You will engage your core and lower your legs down just before they touch the floor, then bring them all the way up to the sky until your bum lifts off the ground.
Second, hold your legs in the straight, barely off the ground position for 5 seconds.
EXAMPLE: 5 straight leg reverse crunches, 5 second hold, 5 straight leg reverse crunches, 5 second holds (continue that pattern for 2 minutes).
