Cara Loren’s 3-move killer abs routine

Loren loves this ab routine because it works your upper, lower, and side abdominals all in one go. Repeat the following moves for a total of three times with no rest in between. Your core should be on fire by the end!

Move 1: Reverse Crunch

Lie on your back on the floor with your arms at your sides and your legs in a tabletop position with your knees bent at a ninety-degree angle. Make sure your back is flat on the floor. Then, Lift your hips and bring your knees toward your chest, hold for a second, then slowly lower back to the start. Repeat for 20 reps.

Move 2: Butterfly Crunch

Lie on your back on the floor with your arms behind your head and your knees bent out to the sides so that the soles of your feet are touching each other. From here, perform a crunch, keeping your feet together as you lift your shoulders off the floor and toward the sky. Hold for a second, then slowly lower back to the start. Repeat for 12 reps.

Move 3: Yoga Side Curl

Assume a side plank position by balancing on your left hand and left foot so that your body forms a “T” in the air. Your right foot can be slightly in front of your left foot for balance. Raise your right hand in the air, then squeeze your obliques to bend at the waist, bringing your right elbow and your right knee together to touch. Hold for a second, then return to the start. Repeat for 12 reps on each side.

Once you’ve completed these moves three times, your killer at-home ab workout is done!

And yes, you can even do this while you’re watching that holiday movie tonight. You can find these moves and more in Loren’s Burn App.
