About the Ab-Blasting Interval Workout
This is a 24-minute bodyweight workout that does not include a warmup or cool down. It can be broken down into three groups, each of which includes four different exercises that are repeated once. Each exercise is done for 45 seconds, and there is a 10 second rest period between exercises.
I’m still pretty new to this routine, so it’s nice to have natural stopping point at various points throughout it if necessary.
The only equipment required for this video is a yoga mat.
It’s hard to know what fitness level it was intended for. I wouldn’t recommend it to an absolute beginner, but you might want to check it out after you’ve been doing ab exercises for a while and want to try something new. It’s neither the easiest nor the more difficult workout I’ve ever done.
If you’d like to know what workout is currently keeping me on my toes, you’re in the right place. I recently moved up to this routine after growing strong enough to stop using the previous ab video I’d been following. (I’ll write a review for that routine in the near future!)
As I’ve mentioned when reviewing the Brutal Butt & Thigh Workout, I love the fact that the owners of this channel don’t have any background music in their videos. It makes it so much easier for me to concentrate on the moves I’m supposed to be copying. I hope they never change that.
The variety of exercises in this routine is nice, too. I find some of them challenging, so it’s helpful to switch things up so often as I work on improving my flexibility and strength.
As usual, the hosts gave suggestions of alternate moves for viewers who don’t have the strength or flexibility to do the same exercises that are recommended for the audience. This is something I really like about these videos in general, and it’s a big part of the reason why I use them so often.
Since there wasn’t a warmup or cool down included in this workout, I also like the fact that not every exercise is intended to be equally difficult. Some of them are clearly meant to focus on our flexibility and range of motion, and I find those portions a bit of a relief after the tougher moves.
I also appreciate the calm demeanours of the couple who runs this site. No matter what they’re encouraging their audience to do, they always explain it in a soothing tone of voice. I am not the kind of person who find being yelled at motivating in any way, so it’s nice to find exercise enthusiasts who take a more mellow approach to the topic.
Honestly, there isn’t anything I’d change about this routine. Everything about it was well done, and I’m planning to continue using this video for quite a while yet. I can’t recommend it highly enough!
