Are you ready to see those ab muscles? Let’s get started!

 

Exercise 1: Burpee with Lateral Jump

  • Place a barbell or (other thin object) on the floor (you will jump over this object laterally (side to side), so make sure it’s not too high)
  • Place your hands on the floor and jump your feet backwards into a plank position (hands under the shoulders, core engaged, body in a long, straight line)
  • Immediately jump the feet back towards your hands
  • Stand
  • Jump laterally over the barbell
  • Perform 10-15 repetitions

Exercise 2: Box Jump Burpee

  • Jump onto a sturdy box or platform (make sure you cushion the landing with your muscles, not your joints)
  • STEP off the platform
  • Go immediately into a burpee (place hands on the floor, jump feet back until you’re in a plank, then jump feet back to the hands)
  • Perform 10-15 Repetitions

Exercise 3: Back Pullover to Standing Overhead Press

  • Lie on a cushioned mat, hold two dumbbells (palms facing)
  • Place feet on the floor under your knees
  • Arch the dumbbells overhead until they almost touch the floor behind you (if your lower back starts to come off the mat, your dumbbells are too heavy)
  • Bring the dumbbells back towards your feet, allowing the momentum to assist as you dig your heels into the floor, engage your core and glute muscles, and come to a full standing position
  • Push the dumbbells overhead
  • Lower the dumbbells
  • Lower your butt back to the floor and return to a lying position
  • Perform 10-15 repetitions
