10 WEEKS TO FITNESS DAY 41 and today we are going to focus on our ABS.  Having a strong core helps with good posture, prevents injuries, helps with back pain and gives us more confidence.   Today we are going to 3 to 4 sets of 15 to 20 reps to really work and isolate our core muscles.  No supersets today so we will complete each exercise before moving onto the next.  Try to only take about 60 second rest between each set.  After we have done our ab workout we will then go do 45 minutes on the stairclimber.  Make sure to really contact your muscles and work past the burn.  If you need to rest a little longer in order to make it through each set without stopping then do it, just make sure to push yourself.   These ab moves don’t have to be done just for active rest, try to incorporate some of them in your daily workout.  So hammer down that pre-workout drink and get your pump on.

Let’s Get 10-Acious!

Congrats! Active Rest is done and your abs have been strengthened and sculpted. Make sure to pound your protein shake and get plenty of amino acids and water. Staying hydrated is important because it helps the heart pump blood through the blood vessels to the muscles to allow them to work more efficient.   FFD~
