Lazy Girl Ab Workout

You know those days you don’t want to put on pants or leave the house? Yeah, that’s me today. I’ve been feeling run down this past week no matter what I eat or how much I sleep. During these times I do take it easy by relaxing from strenuous exercise, eating nutrient-dense foods, and sleeping as much as I can. But, there is a huge difference between needing rest and just being lazy.

When it’s a matter of will, ditch the excuses. I’ve created a killer ab workout that doesn’t even require getting out of the house or even off the floor! All I need is 15 minutes to make your abs burn and burn a few extra calories. Complete each exercise back-to-back, rest for 60 seconds, and repeat the circuit another one to two times.

Super Bowl Challenge: Complete one round of the circuit after each touchdown!! 🙂  If you accept the challenge, share it with me! You can upload a photo to Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter to show that you’re doing your Lazy Girl Ab Workout. Don’t forget to use the hashtags #lifeinspandex #listeam #lislady and/or #bossbabe and tag @life_in_spandex on Instagram or Twitter and @LifeinSpandex on Facebook so I can see them!
