Gyms and group fitness centers may have closed for the time being, but that does not mean we stop training. There are still plenty of ways to get your sweat on at home during these times of social distancing with abdominals being one of the easiest. Training abs requires absolutely no equipment. And since exercise equipment has become as scarce as toilet paper these days, you’re in luck! You literally just need your body and a space on the floor.
I recommend training abdominals 3-4 nonconsecutive days a week.
Repeat circuit 2-3 times based on your fitness level.
For added inspiration and added fun, compile a COVID-19 /quarantine playlist with songs for the apocalypse-
Don’t Stand So Close To Me- The Police
It’s The End of The World- R.E.M
All By Myself- Celine Dion
U Can’t Touch This- MC Hammer
Stayin’ Alive- Bee Gees
Hot Blooded- Foreigner
N.I.B.- Black Sabbath
Toxic- Britney Spears
Down With the Sickness- Disturbed
Zombie- The Cranberries
Add any other theme appropriate songs!
Another fun twist is to find an accountability workout partner and do the workout with them on Zoom, Google Meet or Facetime!!!
I hope this article inspires you to incorporate abdominals into your at home workout routine. Please reach out to me or any other Onelife Fitness personal trainer for advice and tips to stay focused and fit during these times.
