Sweat: Abs

Hey Girl Hey!

*rings bell for new series alert!*

As a busy owner and freelancer, I sometimes have large gaps in my schedule to really get a good workout in but sometimes I am simply swamped. No matter my work schedule, I still try to work up a sweat for at least 30 minutes four times a week.

Let’s be real, we don’t always have time to make it to the gym for 30 minutes of cardio and 90 minutes of weight-training. I mean, maybe we could adjust our busy schedule to get 2 hours to focus on ourselves at the gym for a season. But this type of lifestyle change is not/or has not been proven to be sustainable.

This series of workouts I keep on deck when I am in a pinch for time and still need a morning pick-me-up workout to get my day started on a good note. The workouts, in this series, are designed to help the Damsel who is on busy but still dedicated to living her best healthiest lifestyle.

Today’s workout is a high-intensity interval training (HIIT) ab circuit you can do anywhere; It requires little to no equipment, And it will take you less than 30 minutes to complete.

The Damsel HIIT Abs Workout

Warm-Up. Whenever you work out you want to always take time to warm up the muscles first. Warm-up by jogging in place for 3 sets of 6 reps of 30 seconds. just to get your blood flowing and your heart pumping. When you stretch even if it is a leisurely ride in 89-degree weather.

Next, you are going to set your interval timer for 3 sets of 7 exercises, 45 seconds low intensity (ab workout), and 60 seconds high intensity (cardo: jump rope/high knees/burpees/line jumps, etc.), with 2-3 minutes rest between sets.

The workout:

  • windmills
  • Russian twits
  • v-sits
  • planks
  • side planks l/r
  • alt superwoman
