Sonia's "Make You Sweat" Abs

This is an Abs pattern from (pattern 10292)

Assume classic supine ab position. Control not momentum. You can vary the tempo from set to set if you like to do that.

4 Crunches in center
And oblique crunches 1 right, 1 left, 1 right, 1 left
(Lower to floor completely each time on all the crunches)

2 Reverse curls with knees bent at 90
2 Reverse curls with knees bent at 90 and tilted to the right
2 Reverse curls with knees bent at 90 and tilted to the left

Go through this sequence as many times as your class level demands. I always stress form over number of repitions. Rest as needed to maintain that proper form.

The second time through I do the obliques left, right, left, right. You can also have more advanced students lift and hold their head steady on the reverse curls. Beginners can keep their feet on the floor and do the reverse curls as pelvic tilts. If they can't do a reverse curl without swinging their legs they need to do the pelvic tilt option. I tell my beginners that a reverse curl is just a pelvic tilt with their knees up for added resistance.

You can also finish off these abs by doing a set of crunches combined with the reverse curl just in the center (no tilt moves).

I love to hear from you, so send any comments or questions!
