Fab Abs and Legs Circuit

La, I’m falling behind on posting my workouts as part of the 6-week shred! Today I plan to play catch-up so here’s the most recent one I did just yesterday while the creepy old guy sat and stared the ENTIRE time while questionably stretching with a flex band. Clearly this workout brings all the boys to the yard, if the boys are 65+ year-old men.

Start with a steady-state 5 minute warm-up on the treadmill, elliptical, stairmaster or your machine of choice. Then get ready to engage your core and bust your little bubble butt into shape.

You’ll need a kettle-bell, two elevated steps, or boxes, or benches of the same height, and a stability ball.

Fab-Ab and Booty Circuit

  • Start off with deep squats with the kettle-bell. Standing on the elevated boxes, squat while lowering the kettle-bell and your butt to knee-level/ a seated position. – 15 reps
  • Move to the stability ball and perform 12 walk-out push-ups on the ball, meaning you start with the ball below your belly and crawl forward until only your toes are on the ball, holding your core tight. You should basically be holding a plank position with your toes on the ball. Do 1 push-up and walk yourself back until your belly is on the ball. Try not to use your feet to propel you forward into the walk-out after each rep. Repeat 12 times
  • No rests in-between, hop on over to the kettle-bell and perform 15 kettle-bell swing squats!

Rest for 60 seconds and repeat the circuit 3 more times for a total of 4 sets or up to 6 times if you’re feeling up to the challenge. The focus for all of these moves is to hold your core and ab muscles tightly.
