Six Pack Abs – Hide and Seek!
As I still have a long way to go to achieve my fat loss goal, I thought that even though I’m still recovering from my arm injury, I would still do a short intensive workout, but without the Kettlebells today.
Abdominals are the one area of my body I have neglected for a long time. I just didn’t see any point in exercising such a small group of muscles while my body fat was still too high to see them. Although I throw in the odd ab exercise into my workouts I don’t ever dedicate time to just abs. So today was the perfect opportunity to start. It has made me realise that I really do have a long way to go. Plus it made me see that I really need to tighten up my diet more never mind my abs!! That will make so much difference. If I’m going to be killing my abs, I at least want the hard work to be visible.
The cardio aspect of my workout today is based around exercises that are high calorie burners, to maximise fat loss.
I set my Gymboss Interval Timer for 16 cycles of 20 seconds rest and 40 seconds max effort. And I did 2 rounds of the following 8 exercises:
- Leg to Hand Transfers (don’t know the proper name for this exercise)
- Mountain Climbers
- Side Bridge Raises (right)
- Side Bridge Raises (left)
- Lunge Jumps
I am not going to pretend that this was my best workout. Watching it back, I can see many areas I need to improve on. But I feel good that I’ve made a start at my ab training. Now I just need keep it up.
Join me soon for my next workout.
