Get Flat Abs With This Yoga Inspired Workout

May 14, 2015 2 min read

Looking to get flat abs without a bunch of crunches? I hear ya. I love mixing up my regular ab workouts with some yoga. Yoga overall is great for strengthening and pulling in your core since it recruits all of your core muscles. Adding movement to these poses will help in chiseling results.   Boat Pose Boat pose will work your core, arms and quads. Perform the variation that is best suited for you, whether it's full boat or half boat. Hold for 5 full and steady breaths then release. Repeat 2 more times. summerperezcarbon38michinyfullboatabs Alternate between full boat and half-boat:   Do 3 sets of 20 summerperezcarbon38michinyhalfboatabs Boat Twists: From full boat (or half boat) alternate bringing your arm across your body toward the opposite side as your reach for the ground. Do 3 sets of 20 alternations. summerperezcarbon38michinyboattwistsab   Plank Pose One of my favorites! It's such a great full-body pose. There are so many variations to plank pose if you want to start challenging your muscles even more. Here are a couple variations to try (they progressively get harder). Try them all in this workout. If there's something you cannot do yet, do a regular plank or your favorite variation instead. Plank: Keep your body in line from head to heel. Hold for 30 seconds (or more) then rest. Repeat 4 more times. summerperezcarbon38michinyplankabs Plank with alternating leg raises: Slowly bring up one leg at a time and hold for a few breaths while trying to keep the front of your body facing the ground. Repeat on the opposite side. Do 3 sets of 30 raises (which means 15 per leg). summerperezcarbon38michinyplanksabsleglift Plank with arm raises: Slowly bring up one arm at a time in front of you and hold for a few breaths while trying to keep the front of your body facing the ground. Repeat on the opposite side. Do 3 sets of 20 raises (which means 10 per arm). summerperezcarbon38michinyplankarmup Bird-dog plank: Slowly bring up one arm and the opposite leg and hold for a few breaths while trying to keep the front of your body facing the ground. Slowly lower and repeat. After 10 reps, perform on the opposite side. summerperezcarbon38michinyplankbirddogabs   Side Plank Make sure to keep your hips from sinking by lifting them and keeping your body in line from head to toe. Raise your arm and hold for 30 seconds (or more if it's too easy for you), then repeat on the opposite side.  Do 3 sets of 30 seconds per side. summerperezcarbon38michinysideplank   Side plank crunch Starting from side plank, draw your knee in to meet your elbow.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 4-6 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

We currently DO NOT SHIP to locations outside of the US and Canada. We DO NOT ship to a P.O. Box number.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sometimes delivery can be delayed by circumstances out of our control, like postal & custom delays, back-ordered products or incorrectly entered shipping addresses. If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.

Make sure when checking out and paying for your order that all of your information entered is correct! If you notice a mistake in your address, please try to contact us before your order is processed for shipping to avoid any missed shipments or delays. As soon as we process your order for shipping, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that contains your UPS tracking number. You can head on over to the UPS Website to see where your products are. Note: tracking information may take 1-2 business days to be updated in the UPS system

If you are not home when your package is delivered, BodyRock is NOT responsible if it is stolen. Please contact us if this happens to you and we will provide you with all the information needed to take the next steps.
