Weekly Wednesday Workout: Cross Crunches

It’s my birthday, I am now officially 31. TRIENTA Y UNO! I am so happy and blessed to make it this far in life, some people don’t. Today I am taking a rest day because unlike last year I refuse to get my butt kicked on my birthday–besides I have been lifting some crazy heavy weights this week and my body is TYAD.

Without further adieu, lets work on those abs shall we?

Now, this is a pretty basic move. One you will see everyone doing in the gym and in every class. However, I think I have a new love for this move because of the awesome and amazing accent this guy has simplicity of the move and the ability to target many muscles. I have been slacking majorly on the abs workout and its starting to show, everywhere is getting smaller except my abs, so I better get to work if I plan of wearing lots of bodycon dresses this summer. 🙂

Have you ever tried Cross Crunches? Did you enjoy the view accent?

Ahh Happy Birthday!! Hope you’re having a lovely day so far!

And I am a big fan of those kind of crunches. I’m working on implementing the hanging windmill exercise into my abs routine, but I can’t do it yet. One day!!

Nellie February 10, 2014 - 9:21 pm

Thanks so much Bridget! I bet you will be doing them one day soon!!

First, Happy Birthday again.
And yes, i have tried these and do them often. It’s the only reason my abbs haven’t caught up with my thighs.

I have done them. I didn’t realize I wasn’t going over far enough until my workout with my trainer this weekened. I like how this guy explained them as well.

Reply
Nellie February 10, 2014 - 9:19 pm

Its definitely not as easy as it looks! I did the same. There is reach involved!

Wishing you a VERY happy belated birthday! Thirty-one seems so young to me now…even though it wasn’t really all that long ago for me either. I’m sure the belly will be gone soon. We all have those places that the body gives it up last. For me it’s my hips and butt!

Reply
Nellie February 10, 2014 - 9:17 pm

I am so ready for it to go Leslie!

Joi February 6, 2014 - 10:46 pm
