Awesome little ab workout!

B and I did Rob Riches ab circuit this weekend, and it was awesome! He lists the routine as one circuit performed twice, but we broke it up into two circuits 3 times each.

Hanging Knee Raises x20

Reverse Crunch on decline bench x 15
High Cable Oblique Crunch 20 x each side

Seated straight bar torso twist 20 x each side
Side Swiss Ball Twists 20x each side

Crunch (feet elevated) 10x each side

High Cable Crunch x20
After abs, I decided to switch up my cardio and did lines on the basketball court
Start on "out" line- sprint to free throw line and back, center court and back, the far free throw line and back, then far "out" line and back.... that counts as 1. I rested 30 second between each one, and did 20 total. I was completely dead after, but I will say it was pretty hard on my knees/legs so be careful if you have sensitive legs!

I got in a great legs and cardio session this morning, and have decided that my rest day will now always be the day after leg day. First, because I tend to be tired and very sore after leg day, and second because I typically take Sunday off, but I went to the gym yesterday and it was so empty and peaceful I decided I just have to take advantage of that every week!

Today is the first day of a new month, so it's a great time to think up some new goals and get them written down! Try to think of three things you want to accomplish this month that you did not do last month!

Have a great week :)
