Hi Everyone!

Today’s workout if focused on strengthening and toning the core, and creating a leaner/tighter waist. I chose several moves that utilize the deep abdominal muscles. 

The deep abdominal muscles act like a muscular corset to create a leaner and stronger mid-section. When combined with cardio this is a really great workout for strengthening and sculpting your abs. 

I like paring this workout with cardio. You can repeat the workout up to 4X and pair with 30 minutes of Cardio of choice. 

If you aren’t a runner I listed a cardio option below, or you can pair this with one of my Cardio Workouts for a bonus cardio challenge. 

See you tomorrow!

    Completed this workout twice yesterday as I started the Lean Muscle Challenge last weekend. I can definitely feel it in my abs today! Do you have any modifications for the v-up and/or the reach through? I’m not strong enough at this point to sit up that far while holding my legs up. Thanks!

      You can modify the V-Up and reach through by placing your hands on the floor (below your shoulders) during the exercise. As you grow stronger you can reduce the upper body support. 🙂

    Wow, that was rough! Would love to know some variations (especially for #6 and #7) for those of us who are working up to being able to do the full workout. As always, thanks so much for posting, Melissa! P.S. Love the outdoor venue! 🙂
