What are you listening to as you workout? And what do you recommend should be on any workout music list! Do you have goals? Need motivation to reach any goals? Let's talk about it and help one another achieve a healthy lifestyle. Are you game?

Fat Burning Workouts *Target The Belly* Ab Exercises​


Cross Knee Strike

Stand with your knees slightly bent, arms bent into your body, and your hands in fists by your chin (this is called "on guard" position). Shift your weight onto your right leg, leaving just the toes of your left foot on the floor. Brace your abs and lift your left knee up towards your right shoulder while you turn your right shoulder into your knee. Lower left toes back to the floor, keeping your balance on the right leg. Repeat 20 times with the left leg and 20 times with the right. Focus on your breath to deepen the contraction of your abs: exhale as lift your knee and imagine you're pressing the air out of your lungs with your abs. Inhale as you lower your leg back down.




Side Abs Leg Lift

Stand "on guard" and shift your weight to your right leg, turning your right heel slightly forward and keeping your knee soft. Keep just your left toes lightly touching the ground and extend your left arm up to the ceiling (keeping your hand in a fist). Lift your left leg up to hip height as you pull your left elbow down towards your hip. Lower left leg down to the ground and extend left arm back up to the ceiling, maintaining your balance on your right leg. Repeat 20 times with the left leg, 20 times with the right. Think about 'shortening' your left side as you pull your elbow and leg together to strengthen the contraction of your oblique muscles.




Bob and Weave Circle

Stand "on guard" and then step both feet wider than hip width apart, turning your toes out slightly. Bend both knees directly out over your toes, and lower your body straight down, keeping your shoulders over your hips, your back straight, and your abs pulled in. Holding this deep plie position with your legs, lean your upper body to the left, pressing your left shoulder down towards your left hip, keeping your arms up on guard and chest facing forward. Next, round your back and shoulders forward, scooping your abs in deeper towards your spine, and hips steady. Then come up and around to the right side, leaning your upper body to the right. Finish the move by bringing your upper body back to the middle, and straightening your spine, before repeating in the other direction. Do this 20 times in total, reversing sides each time. Imagine you are tracing a circle with your upper body, and make sure to create a full circle on both sides with every rep.




Double Jab, Cross, Jab, Cover

Stand with your right foot forward, arms on guard. Throw a double jab with your left arm by quickly doing two jabs in a row. Next, throw a right cross punch, then repeat a single jab on the left. Quickly "cover" (imagine you are trying to protect your torso from your opponent's punches) by twisting your upper body (hips stay still) and bringing your right elbow to your belly button. Immediately reverse to the left, and then repeat one more time to the right (the pace of this move is very quick, try counting "1, 2, 3" as you do it to keep your tempo up). Return to start. That's one rep. Repeat 10 times in a row as quickly as you can, and then switch your stance and do 10 reps on the other side.




Side Crunch & Pulse
Hits obliques (sides of abs), seratus anterior (muscles below chest), and six pack Lie faceup, knees bent to 90 degrees, hands behind head. Lower knees to left and crunch up; do 15--25 reps. Return to start, lift shoulders, extend left arm, and pulse forward for 15--25 reps. Repeat sequence on right side. This is 1 set. Do 2 sets.
& pulse
Cross Punch Roll Up

Lie on your back with your knees bent, feet flat on the floor about hip-width apart. Bring your arms into 'on guard' and slowly start to round your spine as you sit up, rolling all the way up through your back. As you're rolling up, perform four cross punches across your body, alternating your right and left arm (by the last punch, you should be sitting all the way up, feet still flat against the floor). Bring arms back to on guard position, keep shoulders facing straight ahead, round your spine, draw your abs in tight and slowly roll back down to the floor. Repeat 10 times in total. Breathe out every time you perform a cross punch as you're sitting up, and inhale as you lower back down to the floor. Be sure to keep your abs braced the entire time.

Fat Burning Workouts *Target The Belly* Ab Exercises
Do what you can and if you want to get more advance with the workout go for it.





Side Crunch

Lying on the floor face up with your knees together and bent at a 90-­degree angle. Without moving your upper body, lower your knees to the right side so that they’re touching the floor. Place your fingers behind your head. Raise your shoulders toward your hips, pause for one second, and then take two seconds to lower your upper body back to the starting position. Perform this move for 30 seconds and then switch your legs to the other side for an additional 30 seconds.




Pilates Sit Ups

Lie down on your mat, chest up. Extend your legs with your toes pointing up and extend your arms straight back past your head. Keeping your arms straight, lift them over your head so they are even with your shoulders. Raise your head, shoulders and upper body toward the ceiling. Keep your body in as much of a straight line as you can. Avoid arching your back. Lead with your chest, not your head. Your upper body should move as a unit. Your arms should remain straight in front of your shoulders as you sit up to a 90-degree angle. Pause at the top seated position. Slowly lower back down, curling your back towards the floor, taking it vertebrae by vertebrae. Once your back is flat, return your arms to the floor behind your head. That is one repetition. Do 3 sets of 12-15 reps.




Bicycle Crunch

Lie on back with knees and hips at a 90-degree angle. Place hands behind your head. Exhale as you lift head and shoulders off the floor. Twist torso to the right, bringing left shoulder in to touch your right knee. Keep left leg straight and lifted off the floor. Inhale as you slowly lower. Repeat, twisting torso to the left. Continue alternating sides for 60 seconds.For an easier modification, feet can return to the floor after each rep.





Russian Twist On Stability Ball

Sit on the stability ball. Carefully walk your feet out in front of you so that you are lying on the ball with your feet flat on the floor. Stick your arms out straight toward the ceiling over your chest with your hands flat together. You should be looking straight up with your shoulders relaxed. Keeping your hips still, rotate your shoulders so your upper body twists to one side. One shoulder should be pointing at the ceiling, the other at the floor. Try to move your whole torso with one motion, and not just your arms. Return to the starting position, and then roll to the other side. Keep your back and legs straight, your stomach muscles engaged, and your shoulder blades pulled back. Repeat as many times as possible in 60 seconds.For an easier modification, place feet closer together to increase balance.




Plank Tuck Twist

Lie facedown on the ball with your hands on the floor in front of you (the “up” part of a push-up), with only your shins and tops of your feet on the ball. Bring your knees in, pivoting them sideways so they come towards your right armpit. Move your legs back out to plank position, and then repeat on the other side. That’s one rep. Repeat for 10 reps. For an easier modification, do the move without a ball while wearing socks on a soft surface or with your feet on paper plates so they will still be able to slide.




Ab Roll Up

To begin, lie on your back with arms at your sides and palms facing down. Lift your butt and lower back up in the air so that the bottoms of your feet are facing the ceiling. In one fluid motion, lower your back and legs and transition to your feet while jumping in the air as high as you can with arms extended straight overhead. That is one rep. Do 3 sets of 12-15 reps.




Ab Clap

To begin, lie on your back with both your legs and hands outstretched in front of you with your heels facing the ceiling and your arms together with palms touching one another. Simultaneously open arms and legs. Make a wide “V” with legs and stretch arms all the way out to both sides. Return to starting formation. This is one rep. Do 3 sets of 15 reps.For an added challenge, add ankle weights!





Reverse Crunch

Lie with your back on the floor and with your palms facing down. Bend your knees in towards your chest. Raise your hips off the floor and crunch your knees inward. Reach towards the ceiling with your toes. Pause, then slowly lower your legs and roll your back down until you’re back in starting position. Use your core muscles to lift; avoid rocking back and forth. Repeat this as many times as you can in 60 seconds.For an easier modification, place your hands under your behind for support, and decrease your range of motion.

Do what you can and if you want to get more advance with the workout go for it.







Reverse Crunch On Stability Ball

Lie face down on top of a stability ball, keeping your feet planted on the ground in a wide stance. With your hands placed behind your head, pull your chest up, contracting the lower back, butt and hamstrings. At the top of the motion, take a slight pause then slowly lower yourself back down allowing yourself to curl around the ball. Do this as many times as possible for 60 seconds.For an easier modification, decrease your range of motion.





Kneeling Side Crunch

Kneel on the floor and lean all the way over to your right side, placing your right palm on the floor. Keeping your weight balanced, extend your left leg and point your toes. Place your left hand behind your head, pointing your elbow toward the ceiling. Now, slowly lift your left leg to a little above hip height. Lower your leg back to starting position. This is one rep. Do 3 sets of 12-15 reps, and then switch sides and repeat.





Stability Ball Crunch

Lie with stability ball resting under the mid/lower back and place hands behind head with feet firmly on the floor. Contract your abs to lift your torso off the ball, pulling your belly button to your spine. Keep the ball stable as you crunch up. Do this as many times as possible for 60 seconds. For an easier modification, ditch the stability ball and lie on the floor to perform a basic crunch.





Hands To Forearm Switch

Start in a push up position on your hands. Next, lower to your forearms going one arm at a time. Whichever arm you lowered first, push back up onto and follow with the other. You should be back into push up position. That is one repetition. Do as many switches as you can in 30-60 seconds. For an easier modification, drop to your knees and go at a slower pace between switches from hands to forearms and back to hands.






Forearm Plank

Lie face down on floor resting on your forearms. Push off the floor, raising up onto toes and resting on the elbows. Keep your back flat, contracting your abdominal muscles while you hold your body in a straight line from head to toes. Don’t let your butt sag or stick up in the air. Hold in this position for 30- 60 seconds. For an easier modification, drop your knees to the floor.





Frog Crunch On Stability Ball

Start by kneeling behind a stability ball. Place your stomach on the ball and roll out until your hands are on the ground underneath your shoulders and your legs are in the air. Bend your knees while touching your heels together and turning toes out. Pulse your legs up towards the ceiling, lifting knees off the stability ball. Perform this move for 30-60 seconds.

Do what you can and if you want to get more advance with the workout go for it.






Scorpion Twist

Lie on your stomach with feet together, arms extended to form a “goal post” with palms facing down and forehead hovering above the floor. Lift your right leg. Bend your right knee while squeezing your right glute and twist your hips to reach your right foot over to touch the ground on the outside of your left leg. Keep your arms and chest on the floor. Return right leg to start position. Perform this move for 30 seconds and switch to opposite leg and perform move for 30 seconds.









Reverse Plank With Leg Raise

Sit with legs outstretched, hands behind hips and fingers pointing toward tush. Press up onto hands, keeping legs fully extended, heels on floor. (You’ll be in a plank position, but facing the ceiling instead of the floor.) Raise and lower left leg, keeping core tight and hips in the same position. Repeat movement with right leg. Perform this move for 60 seconds alternating legs each rep.








Scissor Kick

Lie on your back with legs straight. Fold arms in under your head much like you would for a crunch. Lift legs to a comfortable position. Your back should still be firmly on the mat. If it arches, lift higher. Take your legs out to a wide “V” and then in, crossing one foot over the other. Repeat the move, alternating the top foot for every cross. For added difficulty, lift your shoulders and upper back off the floor. If you are experiencing back pain you can raise your legs higher and/or place your hands underneath you, between your lower back and your tush. Complete as many reps as you can for 30-60 seconds.







Forearm Plank with Alternating Hip Drops

Get into forearm plank position. Keep your abs tight and make sure your body is in a straight line from head to ankles. Drop your right hip towards the floor, return to center and then repeat with your left hip. Alternate sides for 60 seconds.For an easier modification, drop your knees and perform the move.
