Welcome to the end of October! What??? That even sounds weird to say. How is it already the end of October??? Seriously, where on earth did this month go? With the holidays just around the corner, we’re getting ready to kick our workouts into full gear with this 7-Minute Abs Workout!
No holiday stretchy pants for us this year, friends! Actually, that’s not true because I’m obsessed with stretchy pants in the fall/winter and absolutely hate regular pants. HATE. I’ll stick to dresses and legging, KTHANKSBYEEEEE.
This year, I want to challenge us to do this 7-Minute Abs Workout at least 3 times a week throughout the holiday season! Each move is 1 minute long, and there are 7 moves total. That’s it! Just 7 minutes 3 times a week. Wake up a few minutes earlier, do this on your lunch break, while you’re waiting on dinner to cook, or right before you go to bed! Stick to it, and results will come!

Alright, friends. Grab a sis, mat, and water, and let’s knock out this 7-Minute Abs Workout!
1.) Mountain Climbers
Start in plank position, keeping the back straight. Bring the left leg to the opposite elbow, engaging the abs. Return, then bring the right leg to the opposite elbow. Continue alternating.
2.) Jack Knives
Start by laying down flat, hands overhead. Engaging the abs, fold into a V by lifting your upper and lower body until they meet. Return to starting position and repeat.
3.) Flutter Kicks
Lay flat with hands by your sides. Engage the abs, then raise the right leg to a 45 degree angle. Lower the right leg as you raise the left leg. Continue to alternate, keeping your heels from touching the ground.
4.) Bicycle Crunches
Start by laying flat, hands behind your head. Bring your right elbow and left knee to the center, allowing them to meet. Continue by alternating sides.
Place hands behind head and start with feet on the floor. Using your abs, raise your upper body toward the ceiling. Return to starting position and repeat.
6.) Raised-Leg Crunches
Lay flat and raise legs to a 90 degree angle (keeping them as straight as possible). Place arms behind head and in one motion reach up to towards your toes, engaging the abs. Lower back down and repeat.
7.) Side Jack Knives
Start by laying on your left side. Place right arm overhead (reaching for the wall) and stack legs. Next, reach the right arm up while simultaneously lifting the right leg, forming a V. Return to starting position and repeat. Do this on one side for 30 seconds, then rotate and complete the other side for 30 seconds (for a total of 1 minute).
