5 Moves - Minus the Muffin Top


Another 5 Move Post!  Each month I try to write a fitness post.  I'm not diligent about it because sometimes I feel moved to write something else.  But this week, since I'll be in a bathing suit most of next week, I thought I would do some fun fitness.  So read on and Minus Your Muffin Top!
Standing side crunch.  Here at home I only have 5 lb. weights, but at the gym I use 8 lb. weights.  30 reps, each side.  Tip: make sure you have a good amount of "crunch".  Suck in your belly button!

Crunch twists.  The bottom picture is actually where you want to start!  Keep your back flat, shoulders down.  Twist left, then right, 30 reps.  Want to step it up?  Use a weighted ball!  Suck in your belly button!

Side Plank Hip Dip.  Start with hips as high up as you can.  "Dip" your hip for 15 reps.  Switch sides.  Suck in your belly button!

Side Plank Twist.  Start in a side plank hand in the air, hips as high as you can.  Twist, pulling your arm under your body for 15 reps.  Switch sides.  Want to step it up?  Hold a weight!  And yes, you got it... suck in your belly button!

Side Leg Lift Crunch.  Start on your side with both your legs up, toes pointed towards the floor as much as possible (picture #1).  Lift your upper leg, toe pointed down, as high as you can (picture #2).  Go back to your starting position (picture #3).  Pull the same leg towards your chest.  Be careful to keep your knee parallel to the floor and do not hunch your chest (picture #4).  20 reps.
