11 Fitness: Ab exercises besides crunches


NEXT WEEK. MEGAN: THANKS SO MUCH. YOU MENTIONED IT’S A GOOD DAY TO
GET OUTSIDE AND WORK OUT. WE’RE WORKING OUT RIGHT NOW WITH
SONRISA MEDINA FROM ORANGETHEORY
FITNESS. THANKS FOR COMING IN. I KNOW WHAT THAT BALL MEANS.>>IT MEANS WE’VE GOT WEIGHT TO
IT. WE’RE GOING TO WORK ABDOMINALS. MEGAN: WHICH A LOT OF PEOPLE
HATE THE ABS. WHY IS THAT?>>IT’S SUMMERTIME. HERE’S WHY THEY HATE IT, RIGHT? SO EVERYBODY DOES CRUNCHES, AND
THEY WANT TO GO TO THE GYM AND
DO CRUNCHES, AND MOST OF THE
TIME, WHAT THEY’RE DOING IS
THEY’RE JUST PULLING ON THEIR
NECK AND THEY’RE HURTING THEIR SPINE. SOD WE’RE GOING TO SHOW YOU A
COUPLE OF DIFFERENT EXERCISES
YOU CAN DO BESIDES CRUNCHES THAT
ARE NOT THE BEST FOR YOUR BODY. HOWEVER, I WANT VIEWERS TO KNOW
THAT ABS ARE MADE IN THE
KITCHEN, NOT IN THE GYM. SO YOU CAN DO THOUSANDS AND
THOUSANDS OF CRUNCHES, YOU WILL
NOT GET THE SIX PACK ABS IF
YOU’RE NOT EATING RIGHT. YOU’VE GOT TO HEAR THAT. MEGAN: ALL THE AB WORK, DON’T
EAT THE PINT OF ICE CREAM AT
11:00 AT NIGHT.>>A STRONG CORE IS EXTREMELY
BENEFICIAL SO THERE ARE GOOD
EXERCISES TO HAVE A STRONG CORE,
AND THERE ARE A LOT OF BENEFITS
TO THAT. FIRST EXERCISE IS GOOD ROTATION. IF I BRING IT DOWN ON TO THE
FLOOR AND GRAB THE BALL AND PUT
IT AGAINST MY CHEST AND I’M
GOING TO ROTATE ALL THE WAY
THROUGH HRKS SIDE TO SIDE, HOW
MANY TIMES HAVE YOU REACHED FOR SOMETHING AND PULLED SOMETHING
IN YOUR LOWER BACK. A LOT OF THIS IS GOOD FOR
STRENGTHENING THOSE MOVEMENTS. MEGAN: CAN YOU START HERE OR IS
THERE A MOD CATION IF IT’S
CHALLENGING.>>A MODIFICATION WOULD BE HERE
AND REACHING IT THROUGH WITHOUT
THE WEIGHT, ABSOLUTELY. THIS IS A GREAT EXERCISE A SAFE
ONE. THE NEXT EXERCISE, COMING DOWN,
AND YOU DON’T HAVE TO CRUNCH UP. A LOT OF PEOPLE WANT TO CRUNCH. INSTEAD, BRING THE WEIGHT UP
OVER THE HEAD AND IF YOU’RE
TARGET THE MOVEMENT WITH THE
BELLY BUTTON PRESSED INTO THE
FLOOR AND STABILIZING THE RIB
CAGE, YOU CAN GET GOOD EXERCISES OUT OF THAT. DO I HAVE TIME TO SHOW ONE MORE? MEGAN: WE HAVE ONE MINUTE. GO AHEAD.>>ONE MINUTE, I COULD DO 20 OF
THESE. MEGAN: PERFECT.>>IF I WENT AHEAD AND HELD A
PLANK AND NOW I CAN REACH THAT
BALL AROUND AND I’M HITTING ONE
SIDE OF MY CORE, STRENGTHENING
IT UP AND OBVIOUSLY, GO TO THE
OTHER SIDE. MEGAN: THAT LOOKS HARD TO ME.>>STABILIZING THE ABS. MEGAN: FOR THOSE WHO AREN’T
FAMILIAR, WHAT IS ORANGETHEORY?>>IT’S AN HIIT WORKOUT, FIVE
ZONES WITH A HEART RATE MONITOR. WE GET PEOPLE IN EXCELLENT,
EXCELLENT SHAPE. WE’RE OPENING UP IN OWINGS MILLS
NEXT WEEK. MEGAN: CONGRATULATIONS. HOW LONG IS THE WORK OUT?>>ONE HOUR. STRENGTH, CARDIO, WE GET IT ALL
DONE. WE’RE SEEING FABULOUS RESULTS
FROM ALL OF OUR MEMBERS. MEGAN: MY ABS ARE HURTING JUST
WATCHING BUT THOSE LOOKAL
