Yea yea…we know….insanity is doing the same thing, over and over again, but expecting different results. That’s usually true…unless it’s ab day…then doing the same thing over and over again will bring different results. Nice, strong, trim ABS!
Our Tuesday and Thursday Ab routine is the same as last week. The only difference….now we’re stepping it up to 3 rounds. 3 rounds of each exercise for the rest of the month. In this case, insanely doing the same routine over and over while bracing that core will bring awesome results!
Day 8 exercises: Abs – 3 rounds – :30 each exercise for all exercises = 1 round
- Roll Up
- Pilates Scissors
- Bird Dog Crunch – Right Side
- Boat Pose
- Bird Dog Crunch – Left Side
- Side Plank – :30 each side
Bonus: #DailyAbs – In the spirit of INSANITY and doing the same thing over and over again….it’s back to our #DailyAbs!
3 rounds….1-2 minutes per round + a short rest in between sets = an extra 10 minutes. It would be INSANE if you couldn’t find the time! Come on Crew you got this!
Extra Credit: #5MinutePlank
What’s Ab day without a 5 minute plank?
This is a moving plank so you aren’t holding the same position for very long. Stick with it and prove to yourself just how strong you are!
Sarah’s Calorie Burn: Throw in a little extra calorie burn if it’s a rest day form running!
- 25 Squats
- 60 Jumping Jacks
- 20 Push Ups
- 50 Crunches
Speed Work: The “Short” Ladder – Check out this week’s speed work by clicking here for Monday’s post and scrolling down. Do you have a plan to get your speed work in?
People often call runners “insane” because we push ourselves past normal limits. We endure pain when others would quit. We get up early, have crazy workout routines, and skip “normal” fun stuff to sweat, have sore muscles, and lose toenails.
But we know the truth. Although runners might be “insane” to a normal person, insanity is…the definition of fun!
Don’t be normal…normal is boring. Be awesome…be different…be a little insane…Be you!
And by that I mean…get up and get to work on those abs Crew! 😉
