Avoid Holiday Weight Gain: Killer Abs Workout

All I want for Christmas is... washboard abs! You, too? That’s why I’m here; it's no exclusive secret, and it doesn’t take "perfect genes" — anyone can get them. It just takes the right training and the drive to do it. Here’s one of my newest intense ab workouts – go for it, and share your results and feedback! Plus, check out last week's video here, and subscribe to my channel for new, free workouts every week.

The Workout:

► 15 Full Sit-Ups
► 15 V-Ups
► 15 Bicycles (15 each side)
► 15 Reverse Crunches
► 15 Rower Crunches
► 1 Min Anti-Gravity Plank Hold

Do as many rounds as you can in seven minutes — or go for as many rounds as you can! Either way, you'll really feel this tomorrow in your abs. Leave a comment and share how many rounds you did. 

But don’t forget, the key to perfect abs is in the perfect recipe; it’s not just about the exercises, it’s about the right combination of the right diet, paired with the right workouts on the right days! 

Also, as you make your holiday wish list this year, keep in mind that there is no better investment than in your health, and your life — that's why I highly recommend my 14-Day Diet and Fitness Shape-Up Plan, whether it's for you or for someone you care about. And as my gift to you, I'm offering a special $15 voucher for the plan this holiday season! For the price of a normal personal training session, you can get a full program that will not only transform your body but allow you to learn how to get serious results in less time — a plan that will last a lifetime. Get more info here. Offer valid through December 25 with the code HotfortheHolidays. 

What do you think?

Merry Merry! And please let me know personally if you plan to hop on the 14 Day plan or give it to someone you love; I’d love to check in with you!
