I have a quick but effective ab workout to share with you today. I’ve been using it with some of my clients for the last couple of weeks as a warm up/core circuit and I’ve done it myself a few times too. I did it to finish up my workout yesterday and my abs were a little sore today!
The workout utilizes a stability ball. This is something that many people have at home and can be found in any gym. I love using stability balls for a variety of movements, especially core training.
And here is a quick video to demo all of the movements.
This workout burns! I had to stop a few times in the last circuit to lay over the ball and stretch my abs. The toes to bar movement is sneaky hard.
Let me know if you try it!
Here’s a quick recap of my workouts for last week. I was really strapped on time with the new schedule launching at Charlotte Yoga this week on top of a million other things to do so I stayed at the studio to practice a few days before/after I taught and squeezed in 20 minute gym workouts other days. Hope to settle down and get back to running this week.
500 meter row
15 GHD sit ups
10 deadlifts (105#)
10 pull ups (strict, band assisted)
I only had 25 minutes from the time I walked into the gym until I had to walk out so it was all business!
CrossFit + Stability Ball Abs Circuit
20 minute AMRAP:
250 meter row
15 kettlebell swings (35#)
12 sit ups
9 power cleans (75#)
I finished 6 rounds. It was hard.
Taught BodyPump + 45 minute walk with Sullie
Do you use the stability ball in your workouts?
