[Music] hey everyone it’s your personal trainer coach Kozak and I’m Claudia and this is our ab workout this workout doesn’t require any equipment but you may want to use a mat for comfort I’m gonna be doing the intermediate through Advanced exercises and follow me for the beginner modification if you’re ready ready to go let’s do this thing let’s go to the ground going in a high plank position Claudia’s going to stay down on her knees I’m gonna come up into a bear plank position keep my knees bent at a 90 little bend in your elbows go ahead and reach through and return well on this one I want you to make sure you’re rotating at that core and of course making sure to breathe so don’t just let your arms swing underneath right but instead as you reach through like you’re reaching up and trying to grab something on the opposite side and your core is rotating at the same time good hold strong on this one these are some really functional ab exercises as aren’t only going to get nice and tight but they’re also going to be strong I mean for sure I can feel it we feel that working right there with you come on one into the next you got it let’s go just 10 more seconds that’s it ten more seconds almost there let’s go five four three two one zero all right lying down on our backs to the next one we do a nice old leg raise plus arm scissor so I’m gonna have my leg street cloudy’s gonna have a bend in her knees bring your chin up keep your back flat on the ground now arms scissor you’re going to bring your arms overhead and then straight up and down but the key is to hold those legs up while you do it now Claudia’s version is a little easier the straighter your legs are the harder it gets the more bent knees are please your again you decide which one is right for you today either way keep moving don’t stop don’t hit that pause button something brought you here today that’s going to be the thing that gets you through come on let’s go fight through guys play through that burn keep working keep working before I can keep breathing nice steady breathing – this entire movement 5 4 3 2 1 not going too far moving into lying figure 8 I’m gonna place my hands on my hips now my leg straight I’m draw a little 8 Claudia’s going to have her knees bent and draw the number 8 and you decide which variation is right for you doesn’t have to be really pretty 8 but the whole key is that you’re getting that left to right and up to down motion and down and up good and I only keep grinding guys is that point of the workout please don’t want to quit hey everything in your body is telling you to tap out but you’re running the show it’s all mental in your head come on don’t stop don’t hit that pause button come on let’s grind it out guys grind it out good breathe go 5 4 3 2 1 0 turning over high plank position Clyde’s going to go to her knees I’m going to stay up on my feet and now I’m going to go kick through plus T rotation Claudia it’s only going to do that T rotation without the kick either way and a nice full rotation on your core keep it nice and tight that stays straight good Louise I’m really going to feel it right in the obliques please that’s what I’m feeling it I’m doing it everywhere that’s okay I know it’s working and that challenge my muscles are facing is where change happens if you want change you want result you got to get yourself out of your comfort zone and that’s what you’re doing right here one right after another that’s alright cuz every rep could you just put that much closer to your goal come on keep it up guys doing great let’s go just five more seconds on this one four three two-one-zero are going to our back we got a lying bicycle neck line flat down legs are out straight now I’m going to go opposite elbow to knee where Claudia’s gonna do the same thing she’s going to go ahead and return her opposite leg to the ground every time I’m going to keep my legs up try to go as fast as you can using good form if you cannot get elbow to knee that is okay the best as you can if you start with the top one and you got to switch to the easier one that’s it okay – no shame in that this is a hard hard movement make this workout your own come on
