Exercise of the week and NEWS...

Ok Ladies it's that time of week again!
Who doesn't want smokin' abdominals?! Let's get started!
Abdominal Scissors

bLie on the floor with legs extended above hips, feet pointed toward the ceiling.
bLift head, neck and shoulders off the floor and rest hands on calves.
b Squeeze shoulders down and back to stabilize upper body.
b Inhale, then exhale as you lower right leg to the mat about 6 inches from the floor. Continue to guide left leg toward chest with both hands.
b Continue to "scissor" legs, inhaling as you initiate the movement and exhaling as you move your legs.

Start off with 3 sets of 12 repetitions (6 each leg). Eventually working up to 20 reps.

*Special note, Erin at Baby Bridges had her sweet little Irelynn early Thursday morning. Go to her blog and check out the latest and greatest pics of her new addition. She is gorgeous! So happy for you guys.

I used to do something like this, but not quite the same. I'll try it out. I love the last two exercises you showed, I try to do them at night before bed (when I remember, lol!).

I hope you guys had a great weekend!
