Tone & Tighten in Ten Days: Abs

September 17, 2014 2 min read

Got 10 days to make a difference? This Tighten & Tone in Ten Days workout will challenge you to tone up your abs and keep them firm during the upcoming winter season to stay bikini body ready all year long! I decided to give this plan a try for myself. You can view my before & afters here.   Directions: Complete each excerise for ten days, twice daily.
25 Reverse Crunches
  • Lie on the floor and place hands on the floor or behind the head.
  • Bring the knees in towards the chest until they're bent to 90 degrees, with feet together or crossed.
  • Contract the abs to curl the hips off the floor, reaching the legs up towards the ceiling.
  • Lower and repeat.
  • It's a very small movement, so try to use your abs to lift your hips rather than swinging your legs and creating momentum.

20 Oblique V-Ups
  • Lie on your left side, legs angled 30 degrees from your hips.
  • Rest your left arm on the floor and put your right hand behind your head
  • Lift your straight legs off the floor, bringing your torso toward your legs
  • Slowly return to start. That's one rep.

30 Scissor Lifts
  • Raise both legs toward the ceiling.
  • Keeping them straight, lower your left leg until it’s about six inches off the floor.
  • Lift your head and shoulders off the floor and grasp the back of your right leg, gently pulling it toward you.
  • Switch legs and repeat on other side.
  • Quickly complete 10 reps (no pausing!)

60 second Side Plank
  • Lie on your right side with your legs straight.
  • Prop yourself up with your right forearm so your body forms a diagonal line. Rest your left hand on your hip.
  • Brace your abs and hold for 60 seconds. If you can't make it to 60 seconds, hold for 5 to 10 seconds and rest for 5; continue for 1 minute. Be sure your hips and knees stay off the floor.

25 Bicycle Crunches
  • Keep a mat on the floor and lie on it.
  • Now keep your hands behind your head and interlock your fingers. Also put your feet in air.
  • Now lift your head up and touch your right elbow to the left knee while pulling your leg up towards your head.
  • Now do the opposite with left elbow and right knee.
