FAT BURNING LEG AND AB WORKOUT
This calorie killing leg and ab workout is perfect to get slimmer thighs and toned tummy.
It’s my go-to workout lately to train my core because it also helps target the legs and thighs, too.
The abdominal and legs are among the largest muscle groups in the body. Training them together, burns more calories which means better results for you.
The legs also act as a counterweight allowing us to target more lower ab muscles. This helps target lower belly pooch and helps flatten out the tummy area more. (WOO! That’s what most women want and why I designed this workout to do.)
See me explain more and demo the workout in today’s episode of CCtv.

EXERCISES FOR LEGS AND ABS
Single Leg Bridge
Lie on your back with your knees bent. Lift one leg up. This is your start position. Lift your hips up until your body is in a straight line. Keep your hips level. Slowly lower back down to the start position to complete one rep. Complete the same number of reps with your other leg to complete one set.
Toe Tap Crunch
Start laying on your back with your hands on your head and your elbows out and down to the side. Lift your elbows up as you lift your legs up. Lift one leg faster than the other and lift the lower leg up to ‘tap’ the your leg as high as you can. Lower back down to the start position to complete one rep.
Lie with your hands behind your head with your legs lifted off the floor and bent at a 90 degree angle. This is your start position. Engage your abs and lift your shoulders up off the ground slightly while drawing your knees in at the same time. Lower your shoulders back down and extend your legs back out to the start position to complete one rep. Do the same number of reps with your other leg to complete one full set.
Side Plank Pulse
A side plank is your start position. Lower your hip down to the floor, then immediately lift your hip back up to the start position. Continue pulsing your hip up and down, quickly racking up reps until you feel the burn. Once you feel the burn, do 5 more. Switch sides and repeat the movement on the other side to complete your set.
Cross Over Plank
Get in a plank position. This is your start position. Quickly draw your in up and across your body towards the opposite elbow. Immediately reverse the movement back to the start position. Quickly repeat the same movement on the other side. Alternate sides at a face pace until you feel the burn. Once you feel the burn do 5 more to complete one set.
Leg Lift Crunch
Lie with your hands behind your head with your legs bent with feet planted on the floor. This is your start position. Engage your abs and lift your shoulders up off the ground slightly while lifting one leg up at the same time. Lower back down to the start position to complete one rep. Do the same number of reps with your other leg to complete one full set.
