Last week a pal of mine was in town for a conference and we managed to have a long over due catch up.
Back in the day this would have involved several shandies and a bite to eat, but we’re older and wiser now, so we went to the gym.
I know, rock and roll…LOL :)
In all seriousness though, it’s not a bad idea to catch up with friends by doing something active <== top tip
Anyway, we did an upper body workout followed by a very simple abs routine.
A few days later I sent him a text to see how his upper bod was feeling.
This was his reply…
“Chest is fine, but my abs have been a mess all week!”
Of course, I had a little chuckle to myself and then had a brainwave…
I’ll share the abs routine that we did with you :)
As I mentioned, it was super simple and only involved 2 exercises.
One of which you might not have seen or even heard of before…
A) Bosu Bicycles <== I’m talking about this cheeky monkey
B) High Plank
Now, my buddy and I did these two exercises as a “tag-team”.
I did the bosu bicycles, while he did the high plank and vice-versa.
Once I hit 40 reps (that’s 20 each side) we switched and repeated this lot for 3 rounds.
If you’ve not got any friends nearby, then you could time your plank instead.
It’s so simple, but at the same time, it’s so effective.
This means you don’t have to spend 15 minutes on working your abs and instead can focus on other exercises that burn more chub.
If you haven’t got a bosu knocking about, then your best bet is to swap the bosu bicycles for regular bicycles.
Give it a bash and your abs could well be a “mess” for several days too.
That’s a good thing apparently ;-)
Ta-ta for now,
