BIKINI BOOTCAMP: KILLER CLAM

posted by Elshane on Apr 10 2014, under Health/Fitness

As you might have (*cough *cough, hopefully, hello is anyone out there?!?) noticed, I'm all about ABS! I live for a lovely lady with three vertical lines. Real girl interpretation= cut abs straight down your center, and left and right obliques. Beyonce, Beyonce, Beyonce...

Follow along for a deep lower abs belly burn, aka, the feel better in a bikini "Killer Clam"...

Lay down on a yoga mat on a flat comfortable surface.

Bend your legs and cross your right ankle over your left. Bring both hands behind your neck with your elbows facing out. 

**The hardest part of this exercise is keeping your elbows facing outwards at all times--never let them crunch in/upward towards the ceiling!**

 

Slow and controlled in a count of two, start to lift your legs up into a table-top position all while lifting your head, neck, and shoulders to meet your knees, and then another slow count of two to get yourself back down to original position (feet on floor, head, neck, shoulders on floor).

**The hardest part of this exercise is keeping your elbows facing outwards at all times--never let them crunch in/upward towards the ceiling!**

 

Repeat this four-count burn (two counts up, two counts to get down) 20 times.

Now, crunch in as tight as you can go (knees to chest). Keep those elbows facing outwards! Your head, neck, and shoulders should be off the floor. Pulse into your knees (only moving one inch) for 20 pulses!

**The hardest part of this exercise is keeping your elbows facing outwards at all times--never let them crunch in/upward towards the ceiling!**

Drop those legs! Now switch your feet-- cross your left ankle over your right and... REPEAT!!!!!
