In this video from thewomensworkoutchannel, bikini model and fitness guru Niki Justice will lead you through seven simple floor exercises in a workout intended to trim and tone your upper abdominal muscles, lower abdominal muscles, and obliques. The workout is comprised of traditional exercises, so no fancy equipment is needed.
You’ll begin with hip raises, and you’ll end your workout with one of Niki’s signature move designed to trim your waist rather than bulk it up with muscle. The workout lasts less than ten minutes, and Niki performs the exercises with you as if you were taking an exercise class with a friend! You’re sure to get a great workout, so try it out today!
The first exercise is a set of 30 Hip Raises. Lay on your back lifting your legs up and place your hands under your bottom. Raise your hips as high as you can, squeezing your abs.
The second exercise is 15 Side Oblique Crunches per side. Stay laying on your back with your legs bent and feet on the floor. Roll knees to one side, keeping shoulder blades on the ground.
The third exercise is a set of 20 Leg Raises. Once again, lay on your back with your hands under your bottom. Raise your lets up and keep your knees straight. Lower your legs together as far as you can, squeezing your abs as you lower them. Then lift them back up. Make sure your back stays on the floor and stays straight.
The fourth exercise is a set of 20 Crunches. Left legs up with knees bent at right angles. Make sure your stomach is tight and flexing.
The fifth exercise is a set of 20 Full Sit Ups. Start laying on your back with arm up over your head. Bend your knees and keep your feet on the floor. Sit up squeezing your abs as you do so.
The sixth exercise is a set of 30 In-and-Out Hops in the plank position. Start by getting into the plank position with back straight. Hop your lets apart, then hop them back in.
