https://www.youtube.com/embed/I6Wfz0sonDA Hey, guys! I’ve got a treat for you women today. We’re going to talk about getting those six pack abs. So, we are going to look at it and easily laid out plan to get those abs to pop. All right, you guys. We all know that good old diet is the number one way to get those abs. I, myself, have gone to the trenches of trying to figure it out so hopefully today this is a nice, easily laid out, five step plan that will make it accessible for everybody to get those abs. Especially, during the holidays and all of that stuff that might be going on. So, first and foremost our number one is going to be: cut the crap. Literally, you need to cut out all the crap. I can see all the kind of stuff that goes in your head.Like, “Okay, just going…

https://www.youtube.com/embed/Bj7ub4ys7yI Hey, you guys! I’m Melissa with ATHLEANXX for Women and today I have a plank challenge for you. Let’s go. We’re going to be in the plank position for quite a while. This is going to challenge your body. This is what you’re going to need: an interval timer. You’re going to set it for either 10 or 15 rounds, depending on what you want to do. I encourage the 15. However, if you can only get through the 10; totally fine. Five seconds of rest, 30 seconds of work. Doesn’t sound like a lot. Normally I do a minute, or 50 seconds. So, you’re like “Oh, 30? No big deal.” But when you’re in the pushup position, let me tell you what. It’s killer. You just need your bodyweight. That’s it. So, you’re going to start off doing shoulder taps. So as soon as it beeps I want…

https://www.youtube.com/embed/5zEx5-t9_Po Hi, guys! I’m trainer Amy Jo with ATHLEANXX for Women, and today we’re going to do an eight minute workout for the lower abs. We’re going to target those puppies. So let’s go! Our first exercise is going to be on the mat. You’re going to lay down, and these are tuck ups. Each one is going to last 60 seconds. We’re going to do two rounds. So, four exercises, two rounds, each one 60 seconds is a total of eight minutes. So let’s do it. Tuck ups. Open up the arms and the legs, and then you’re tucking, and back down. So have a stopwatch near you. Go. So you want to really take your time on these, making sure you’re tucking in the abs, curling them in at the top.Squeeze. You can’t necessarily really target the low abs, but you can focus on squeezing, and pulling them…

https://www.youtube.com/embed/8pnIXtFB9oE Five of the best standing ab exercises. So no need for an exercise mat with these exercises. This workout will hit all muscles in your core from your abs, to your hips, to your pelvis, to your lower back. We’re going to be doing anywhere from 12 to 15 reps today. We’re going to try for three rounds, and just try to keep your rest periods short. The first thing we’re going to start with is a standing bicycle. You’re going to put your hands behind your head. You’re going to think about driving the opposite knee to the opposite elbow, but the key to this one is really thinking about rotating, and bringing the opposite elbow back. So what I’m talking about is, if I’m driving here, it’s really about – see how I’m really pushing that back elbow back? That’s what we’re really going to look for,…

Today we’re going to work on our lower abs; strengthening them. Which can be a tough area for a lot of people. That seems to be one of the biggest questions I get when I’m in the gym. So I’m going to show you five of my favorite lower ab exercises to help you strengthen, get that muscle activated, and working. Okay, we’re going to start with a Swiss ball crunch. Any size of ball will work. Preferably, maybe this size or a little bit smaller. So what you’re going to do is you’re just going to put your foot on the top, middle of the ball. Think about pushing your heel into the ball as you’re bringing it toward you, and think about rotating your hips up, toward your…

A lot of people may have a gluten issue, other people maybe with wheat. So, let’s talk about different foods that may be causing some issues and some ways we can fix that. The first thing we want to talk about is refined carbs and sugar. The first thing is, while fiber is a complex carbs which feeds good bacteria, refined stuff actually feeds the bad. So, we want to get rid of those. We want to add in – the fix for that – we want to swap out the refined. We want to bring in the good carbs like beans, starchy vegetables, and whole grains. It could be a pretty easy fix. Number two: alcohol. Womp, womp, womp. A lot of…

Hi, everyone! I’m trainer Amy Jo with ATHLEANXX for Women, and today we’re going to do a sit down talk about five reasons why you are not getting flat abs. I’m sure you can already think of reasons why you may not be getting the abs you’ve been after, but I’m going to give you my professional advice. What’s worked for me, what I know has worked for others around me, the trainers here on ATHLEANXX for Women. There are a few of them that are pretty important. The first one that is going to be a shocker to you all is drinking alcohol. I think it’s overrated, I think it costs money – let’s see here. I could give a long list, but it’s extra calories that you’re drinking. It’s not doing anything for your results. So you want flatter abs? Stop drinking alcohol. All of it. Hard alcohol,…
