THE BIKINI ABS PROGRAM
EXERCISE QUICK TIPS
CRUNCHES WITH MEDICINE BALL
Keep your shoulders and neck relaxed with your arms fully extended. Squeeze hard at the top of the rep.
OBLIQUE CRUNCHES ON BOSU
For maximum stability, position your hips at the base of the BOSU with your feet scissored rather than stacked.
V-UPS WITH STABILITY BALL
When exchanging the ball between your hands and feet, only your hips and butt should be touching the ground.
CRUNCHES ON BOSU
Gently place your fingers behind your head rather than clasping to avoid pulling on the neck.
ONE-ARM, ONE-LEG V-UPS ON BOSU
Simultaneously raise your leg and opposite arm. Make sure to lift your entire torso, not just your shoulders.
Twist your torso and touch your elbow to the opposite knee with every rep. If needed, slow down your reps.
BUTTERFLY CRUNCHES ON BOSU
To increase the challenge of this exercise, move your feet in closer to your body. To make it easier, move them further away.
HANGING LEG RAISES
To minimize momentum, make sure your body is completely still with your legs straight before beginning each rep.
