"Rock-hard" Abs

This is an Abs pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 11926)

Part 1

(Note: keep the lower body pattern going throughout the exercise, and work the upper body into that pattern).

Repeat above in sets of 4.

Part 2.

Start with a traditional crunch position (feet shoulder width apart on floor, back flat, abs tight, finger tips behind ears, chin off chest, elbows wide - you know the drill!). Lift the right leg and hold it around 2 inches from the floor. Crunch with upper body and raise leg to a knees-even position, then back to 2 inches from floor (The foot of the working leg should never touch the floor). Do 20 reps.

Repeat with left leg raising - 20 reps.

Return to right leg extended. Replace the upper body crunch with an upper body cross (left elbow to right knee). Do 20 reps.

Repeat with left leg (right elbow to left knee) - 20 reps.

That's it! With slower music (I like 120 - 122 bpm for abs) this routine is around 5 minutes. A nice set to finish a longer cardio class. Please write with questions or comments.
