Home Abs Workout- Coronavirus Quarantine Series
I decided to start an at-home workout series to help keep everyone in shape and feeling good as we all deal with the impact of coronavirus. The workouts have been carefully curated and designed for all skill levels and require no equipment. This installment is an at home abs workout, that will engage all portions of the abdominals and only takes 20-25 minutes. If you’re new to the blog you can see the first video, a full-body equipment-free workout here.
This abs workout will be performed circuit-style, for 30 seconds per exercise. Repeat for 3-5 total rounds. Be sure to rest in between if you are out of breath because you won’t be able to properly contract the abs if you are trying to catch your breath. Exhale forcefully on each repetition. After each round of the circuit, rest for 1.5 to 2 minutes.

I cannot stress enough the importance of staying active while quarantined. It will not only keep your body in shape but it will give you a mental break as well. Exercise is well known to improve mood, and relive stress. Stay active and stay positive! -Parker
