Rest Day = Ab Day!

Wednesday's are rest days from Body Earned. I may have mentioned this last week, but I don't like taking rest days mid-week. I decided to do another ab circuit and after spending some time on, I developed one that is AWESOME. I'm SO sore today. Everywhere. Not just my abs. Whoops. We'll see how W2D3 goes today...

Anyways, here's what I did. I repeated each circuit 3 times before moving on to the next one.

15 minute incline walk (speed 4.0, incline 15.0) - I'm going to decrease to 10 minutes next time to keep this under an hour.

Circuit 1
1 minute plank
15 butt/leg lifts (slow with control)
Bear crawl (for about 30 seconds)

Circuit 2
45 second plank/side
15 bicycle crunches/side (have both legs fully extended and a few inches off the ground before bringing the next leg in)
Crab walk (for about 30 seconds)

Circuit 3
15 cable rope cruches
15 SB roll-outs
V-sit twist (50 total)

Circuit 4
15 roman chair leg raises (legs straight) 
15 back extensions 
Mountain climbers with a twist (knee to opposite elbow, fast, 50 total)

Sprints 5 x 30 seconds, 15 second rest. I was at speed 10. 
Cool-down walk to lower HR. Mine was about 2.5 minutes.

Not too bad for an ab day!
