Can’t believe we are already on to Week 4 of Bridal Bootcamp!! I had a great weekend in Vegas for my bachelorette party and I don’t know about you but after a weekend like that with all of your girlfriends all I want to do is be home and get back into my workout routine! So let’s jump right into it with abs.

These ab workouts that I do with my trainer Dave from  Elite Fitness, help tighten the core and strengthen your abdominal muscles while also working a sweat.

Let’s begin.

1.) Get your obliques toned up with this simple technique.


Laying on one side with one arm out in front of you for support and other arm in air, lift your legs up together while also reaching for your ankle to create the second position shown. Repeat movement 20 times before turning on to other side to reach other oblique.

2.) Mountain Climbers


With feet and hands shoulder width apart, bring right knee in towards arms and alternate legs in a fluid motion. This gets the heart rate up while tightening your core. Repeat motion for 20 times each leg.

3.) Plank

4.) Side sit-ups


Laying on back with left ankle on opposite knee place arms behind your head and lift up with right elbow touching left knee. This really tightens your obliques and core for a flat stomach. Repeat 20 times each side.

5.) Side lifting plank


Position yourself in a side plank with legs crossed as shown. In one motion drop your hips down and back up towards ceiling. Repeat this movement 15 times each side.

6.) Side standing crunches


With a weight in one hand and other behind head, keep back straight and drop to side of weight and then back up to other side in fluid motion for a small crunch to both sides. Repeat 20 times on each side.

If you follow this ab workout at least 2-3 times per week you will continue to see results and a tightened tummy!

Until next week! Stay active and enjoy these workouts as often as you like. For the other workouts you may have missed check them out below:
