Killer Ab workout Day 13

Saturday, August 15, 2009
Insanity Abs
First time for TWO workouts in one day!
Day 13: Pure Cardio and Cardio Abs

Did you ever have one of those days that did not go the way you planned? Well.. that was today. We had blocked off today as a working day but ended up having to run several errands. That pushed our INSANITY workout to later in the day so I was in the middle of my mid-afternoon drowsies.

No yawning allowed here. Once we got moving it was on!
Pure Cardio's warm up has 3 circuits and each time they get faster. Then comes the stretch followed by ALL CARDIO. No water breaks are given during the cardio. By the end of the DVD, Shaun T is mumbling and the people on the DVD are falling out. After the final stretch, we moved directly into disc 2 for the day, CARDIO ABS.

CARDIO ABS is about 20 minutes long and starts with jogging, moutain climbers, jumps and everything is core-centric. That is followed by the seated ab mat workout. Shaun T. tells you with great pride that there are
NO CRUNCHES in this workout, but I almost think most people would rather have crunches than do Plank work!

I loved the Cardio AB disc. I felt really good doing it. I do a lot of Pilates, Turbo Kick and core workouts so abs are one of my stronger assets. I will tell you that by the time I got to the Low Plank series, I once again landed in a pool of my own sweat so don't think I'm showboating. Hard day, but good!

Tomorrow is our official rest day and we film our 2 week fit test again on Monday!

What is your favorite ab routine?
