So yesterday I told you guys that I’ve become an abdominal exercise fiend: not because I actually enjoy doing these workouts, but because they’re totally necessary to getting rid of that spare tire that appears after the baby makes his way out of your belly. So I’ve taken some ideas from my barre dvds and turned them into their own little workout – for integrating with my living room circuit or after doing some cardio. Feel free to interchange the exercises – I usually pick some to do in a combination of three sets.

Touch your elbow to the opposite knee – and slowly rotate to the opposite side. Do twenty reps on each side of your body. This engages all of the muscles in your stomach. Don’t rotate too fast – or you’ll lose a lot of the effectiveness of this exercise! (photo credit: supermamafitness.com)...Continue reading at The Mommyhood Project
