8 Minute Abs??????

I used to play sports. I played college soccer (don't get too excited, it was for a small school in Northern Wisconsin in the NCCAA yes, double C for Christian, meaning not as competitive as NCAA). But I did enjoy my time on the team, and enjoyed sports over all.

Now I'm a mom of 2 boys, without very many opportunities to play team sports - so I've taken up exercising. hahahahaha. I do enjoy the feeling, and I enjoy being fit. And I believe that consistent exercise is for EVERYONE! and really makes you feel better about your self, gives you energy and is healthy. I like to think I'm a runner. But when compared to real runners, I just jog a few miles a few times a week. hahaha. nevertheless I enjoy it, so I keep at it. Maybe one day I'll run in a half marathon race . . .

I saw on FB that a friend of mine was talking about these 8 minute Ab workout on You tube! Sounded interesting to me. And on days when i don't run, I like to work on my abs/core. (I did just have 2 kids, one c-sec so it could really use it) I was skeptical - but found it pretty challenging. Then I also did a buns and arms workout, both 8 min long. Doing that a couple times a week is better than nothing. Plus as a mom - 8 minute workout sounds perfect. Go check them out!!!!

Another good, quick workout, is Jillian Michaels, the Shred. Its only 20 minutes but boy oh boy its an intenst 20 minutes.

I feel like I'm always working on my Abs!!!! And that nothing I do helps! Maybe you'll get it under control younger than I have been able to. But I totally agree, whatever exercise is good for my health, so I keep at it. And, hope that someday, the other things will respond!

Oh sounds good - I don't have 2 kiddos as my excuse, but 8 minutes seems feasible.
I looked on you tube - seems like there are several. Do you have a suggestion which one to watch?

I love fast and effective workouts, so that 8 minute abs video sounds great. I have OnDemand through Verizon and love the Exercise tv channel. There are so many options for varying fitness levels. Before I found out that I was pregnant this time around, I made sure to do a different workout everyday. It was fun. I enjoy working out and burning some calories.
