3-Minute Abs Routine

Okay, I am about to board a plane to Las Vegas.

It sounds like fun, but it will mainly be work.

I will have more details for you later.

Okay, today I have a quick workout for you to do that I will be doing in my hotel room after I check in.

It is from Jason Klein.

3-Minute Abs Routine

Hey, what’s up guys?

This is Jason from 180Abs.com. I just wanted to send this workout video over to Rick Kaselj and everybody over at Exercises For Injuries.

I have an awesome 3 Minute ab routine for you.

This routine is going to focus on global ab targeting. It is going to heat up your entire ab chain, which is contrary to a lot of the usual sit up exercises that just kill your lower back.

This workout is only 3 minutes long, and I promise it’s going to be the best ab routine you do in the entire year of 2014.

Are you ready?

We are going to go right into it.

We will be doing Superman T Holds, Mt. Ab Climbers, and Prone Iso Abs.

We will do each of these exercises twice, holding for 30 seconds each, starting with Superman T Holds.

#1 – Superman T Holds

Starting by lying face down on the floor with your legs shoulder-width apart. Extend your arms out at your sides at shoulder-height with your palms facing down. Engage your core and lift your upper body and legs off of the floor. Be sure not to over-extend your neck. Hold this position for 30 seconds, then return to the starting position. Repeat the movement.

The higher you can lift your upper and lower body, the more impactful this exercise will be. Remember to push from your thumbs and squeeze your glutes.

The core covers from your chest, all the way down to the bottom of the gluteus medius and gluteus maximus. You need strength throughout your entire core, not just your abdominals.

#2 – Mt. Ab Climbers

Begin in a four point position with your hands under your shoulders and your knees below your hips. Step back with both feet to move into a straight-arm plank position. Maintain good alignment in your head, shoulders, hips, and legs. Drive one knee up towards your elbow, then push back to the starting position. Repeat the movement on the opposite side. Repeat this movement for 30 seconds, alternating sides.

#3 – Prone Iso Ab

There is no real transition time between exercises. Keep going for 3-minutes straight.

Begin in a four point position with your hands under your shoulders and your knees below your hips. Step back with both feet to move into a straight-arm plank position, then lower to your forearms. Maintain good alignment in your head, shoulders, hips, and legs. Hold this position for 30 seconds.

Here is my question… If you feel that you can do these exercises more than one time for 3 minutes straight, are you pushing yourself hard enough?

If you can do this routine more than once, are you pushing yourself hard enough? That’s my question.

That is it! Great job!
