All I want for Christmas is HOT ABS!
That’s right, you heard me!
It is the holiday season and I am sure those jeans are getting a little tighter around the waist. We try to not over eat, but it can be so hard this time of year. Then we will go into the New Year resolution phase and maybe start the quest of eating healthier and exercising. I am sure this all sounds familiar, right? It can be hard just figuring out how to start and going to a gym may not be easy. Owning my own home gym has been the best investment to my health. I have completely transformed my body with the Total Gym.
So, what’s on your Christmas list this year?
The Total Gym can give you the six pack you always wanted without laying on the floor to do exercises! I can honestly tell you that my abs were made by using just this one machine! Add the gift of health to your Christmas list or bless the ones you love this holiday season with a TOTAL GYM!
Don’t wait until after the holidays to get started on your fitness journey. START NOW!!! I promise the Total Gym is worth it and so are YOU.
My gift to you is this HOT ABS WORKOUT! Here we goooooo!
HOT ABS WORKOUT:
*Attach Cables to your Total Gym*
Depending on your fitness level you can choose 10, 20, or 30 Reps of each exercise.
Lying on your back, holding both cable straps into hands with fists stacked on top of the other, use the cables to crunch up bringing knees into chest and releasing by lowering legs and head back like an accordion. These hurt so bad hence the name “EVIL”! Make sure to exhale as you crunch up.
PULLOVER CRUNCH HIGH KNEES (Repeat these in between next 3 exercises)
Lying on your back, keep your knees high and stable, use the cables to crunch up into your knees. Make sure to exhale as you crunch up. Beginners can keep feet rested on the glide board.
AB LIFT & LOWER
Lying on your back, holding cables into crunch position, arms by sides, remain holding in the upright position as you lift and lower the legs up and down. Keeping the core engaged during the exercise.
Lying on your back, holding cables into crunch position, arms by sides, remain holding in the upright position as you open and close your legs into a split. Keeping the core engaged during the exercise. Challenge the exercise by using a band around the thighs.
Lying on your back, holding cables into the crunch position, arms by sides, remain holding in the upright crunch position as you pedal your feet like a bicycle. Keeping the core engaged during the exercise.
Lying on your back, holding cables by sides, knees are up and reaching towards the head, pulsing into knees reaching as close as you can without extending the legs. Make sure to exhale as you crunch in.*Release Cables
Lying on your back with feet rested on the glide board reach with the arms and crunch up. These can be done also by removing the squat stand and resting feet onto the floor into a standard crunch position. Exhale as you crunch up. Challenge the exercise by holding a weight.
INCLINE AB TWIST
Lying on your back with feet rested on the glide board put hands on the sides of the head or crisscross chest, crunch up and twist from side to side working the obliques. Exhale as you crunch to each side. These can also be done by removing the squat stand and resting feet onto the floor. Challenge the exercise by holding a weight.
INCLINE LEG LIFT CRUNCH
Lying on your back with feet rested on the glide board, as you crunch up, alternate each leg into leg lifts and reach hands behind the knee before going to start position. Exhale as you crunch up. Challenge the exercise by holding a weight.
SIDE HIP RAISE
Lying on the glide board sideways, feet are on the floor stacked, forearm is rested on the glide board and stacked under the shoulder. Raise hips as high as possible as you reach overhead giving the abs a nice stretch before lowering back to start position. Beginners can use both arms for more support.
