TRS Summer Countdown and Bikini Tip of the Week

WOW only 5 or so days until it is officially summer! Hopefully you are as ready and excited as I am! Because it's crunch time, I want to add the finishing touches (or beginning touches) to toning my abs, heres what I found from Fitness Magazine...
4 Easy Moves:
1) Side Plank W/ a Twist:
-Lie on right side with elbow on floor under shoulder, hips stacked.
-Push hips up, forming straight line from head to heels, extend left arm above shoulder.
-Bring left arm under body, rotating upper body to the right. Hold for 1 count, return to start. Do 6 to 10 reps, switch sides and repeat.

2) Crisscross:
- Lie face-up, knees bent 90 degrees with feet lifted and hands behind head.
- Extend left leg 45 degrees to floor while bringing your right knee toward chest.
- Lift head, neck and shoulders, rotating left shoulder towards right knee.
- Switch sides bringing right shoulder towards left knee, and extending right leg.

3) Ball Pass:
-Lie face-up, holding stability ball above your chest in both hands w/arms extended. Bend knees 90 degrees, feet lifted.
-Raise ball behind head while extending legs up (keep that tummy sucked in!)
-Now lift head, neck and shoulders as you lower the ball and place it between your legs. Extend legs forward while reaching hands overhead.
-Repeat, passing ball back and forth between hands and legs. Do 10-12 reps

4) Plank Pike-Up:
-Lie with thighs on top of ball, palms on floor aligned with shoulders, abs engaged (suck em in) and head in line with spine.
-Slowly roll ball towards your body as you lift legs up, like an inverted V.
-Hold for 1 count, slowly roll back to start. Do 10-12 reps

Now get to it and keep up the good work! XOXO
