Aomi's Core Workout!

Summer body ab workout

I get asked all the time what ab moves I use to keep my tummy toned, so  here they are! You can easily use your own body weight to get a great ab  workout. If you're ready to push it even further, you can add some weights  to make these moves even more challenging.

 

Russian Twists

Create a V with your body, keeping the spine straight while bending at the  knees. Clasp hands together. Imagine pointing at the ground as you twist to  one side. Make sure to also point your chest in the direction you are  moving to really create a twist in the abs. Repeat on the other side. This  is one rep. To make this move more advanced, hold a dumbbell or medicine  ball in your hands.



Leg Raises

Aomi Ab Workout

 Lay flat on your back with palms facing down and in contact with the floor.  Engage the abs and slowly raises your legs up as far as you can while  keeping them straight. Slowly lower your legs back towards the ground and  stop just before your feet touch the floor. This is one rep. Take your time  with this and maintain slow, controlled movements. For an advanced version,  try holding a medicine ball between your feet or use ankle weights.

 

 

Spider Plank

Aomi Ab Workout

Get into plank position. Feet should be hip width apart and hands shoulder  width apart. Touch your elbow with your knee while keeping the spine  straight and core engaged, and return your foot to the starting position.  Repeat on the other side. This is one rep. To take this to the next level,  add a push-up each time you bring your knee up to your elbow.

 

Knee Ups

This has similar positioning as the Russian twists except your hands will be touching the ground at your sides. Keeping a straight spine, extend and  straighten the legs, then pull your knees in towards your chest. This is  one rep.

 

Plank With Single Arm Row

Get into plank position with hands gripping a pair of dumbbells. Engage the
core to maintain a straight spine, with feet hip with apart and hands
shoulder width apart. Pull the dumbbell up and towards the side of your
body and slowly bring it back down. Repeat with the other arm. This is one
rep.
