Hi, I'm Sydney Miller, founder and creator of Housework, and I'm going to take you through a 5-minute ab workout that you can do anywhere. You ready for this? Start by lying on your back, with your knees bent and your feet on the floor. Place your hands underneath your head. Keep your elbows nice and wide. Open up those armpits. And then you're going to curl those shoulder blades just a hair off the floor, as you slice towards your ankle. I want you to think about connecting your fingertips to the back of your shoe or your heel. So instead of thinking about crunching up, thinking about reaching side. Really activating those obliques, yeah? Give me two more. Nice. Let's switch. Hand behind the head. Slice and reach. So this 5-minute ab workout is going to hit all parts of your core-- the obliques, the deep abs, the upper abs, the lower abs, the whole nine. Are you ready? Give me two more. We're going to follow the beat. Slice it. Switch sides. And then you're going to tap your knee and your elbow. Other side. Slice. Connect your knee to your elbow. So we're alternating sides here, keeping those armpits nice and open. Woo! Definitely starting to feel those obliques, yeah? And connect it. So fingertips and then elbow tries to touch that thigh. We are alternating each set. Different side, yeah? Good. Let's do a few more like that, and then we're going to up things a little bit. Any time we elevate, if it doesn't feel right to you, you can always do what we were doing before. I just want to give you some options. Last one. Taking things up a notch, you're going to slice. And then when you touch knee to elbow, bottom leg is going to extend long. Slice. Touch that knee to elbow. Bottom leg stays long. You're pointing your toes. Exhale on the twist. Are you starting to feel this? Woo. If it's too much, you can always just tap that knee without bringing the bottom leg to hover across the floor. You can also take that bottom leg a little bit higher if you need to. Last one. We're going to add on. So you're going to do the first part-- slice and reach, knee to elbow. From there, you're going to take your head down, legs up in the air. You're going to give me leg lowers. Flex through the feet. Lengthen the legs. Leg lower right here. Let's just try these, keeping that low back down. Use your breath. Good. So we're going to do that slice, knee to elbow, on each side, and then add these leg lowers. Ready? Feet on the floor. Head up. Slice and reach, and then twist. Other side. And twist it. From there, head down, legs up. Lower abs. Each leg gets a lower, and then feet on the floor from the top. Here we go. Slice and tap. That bottom leg can come long, or you can just bring the knee to the elbow without that bottom leg. Ooh, feels so good. Single leg lower. Single leg lower. Feet down. Let's do it one more time. Let's go slice And catch that beat. Let's go. Slice and-- good. Head down. You're going to stick with these leg lowers for 8, 7, 6-- you can bend those knees if you need to. Let's go. Woo. 4, 3, 2, 1. I'm going to have you flip on over to your modified Plank position. You're going to meet me on your knees, on your forearms, with your butt in line with your shoulders. Just hold. Pull the rib cage and hold it for me right here. Woo. All right. Adding on, you're going to punch each arm out. Let's go. Punch, punch. While you're here, I want you to try to not Rock those hips too much. We're activating our lats, our obliques, and our deep core muscles. Are you feeling it? Woo. My advanced people, if you want to, you can always do this on your toes to take things up a notch. Oh, that takes things up a notch for sure, yeah? Give me five more. 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Hold that modified Plank. Woo. Oh yeah. Just hold. This is our final minute of our ab challenge today, you guys. Are you with me? Woo. Here we go, bringing back that punch. Let's go. Yep. Woo! You got it. Come on. Try to keep those hips from wobbling and use your breath. Yeah. My advanced people, you can come on up if you want to finish this. Woo. Yes. Good. 4, 3, 2, 1. Oh, my gosh. Shake it out. Roll those shoulders back. We did it!
