If you’re having a lazy day, that doesn't mean you can't tone your abs! There is so much that you can do while laying on the couch watching your favorite shows. We’re going to provide you with a full abs workout that you can do to start toning your abs for the summer!


Sit ups or crunches

As basic as it may seem, situps and crunches are the easiest ab workout to do on a couch. It targets all of your abdominal muscles effectively. The one thing you should look out for is to not hunch forward as it can cause injuries. You can increase the intensity by holding a plate or a dumbbell in your hands.


Russian twist

It is a simple yet effective workout for your oblique muscles mainly. It would help tone your abs and work on your waist as well. To increase the intensity of the workout, you can add some weights such as dumbbells or even a plate. Or you can even lift your legs while keeping your knees bent. 


Flutter kicks

Flutter kicks reshape and tone your lower abdominal muscles. All you have to do is lay on your back, lift your feet off the ground and move them up and down while keeping your head pointed towards the ceiling. Make sure that your lower back remains on the ground without arching it. 


Leg raises

Leg raises can do wonders for your lower abdominal muscles. Not just that but it can also improve stability and balance. 


Summer is just around the corner so let’s take advantage of every minute we have to get closer to our summer bodies. You can do these ab exercises while watching your favorite shows or movies. You can either do 3 sets of 20 reps for example or can even time yourself for several sets instead. Don't forget that you can intensify your workout and get better results by adding some resistance to your workout such as through a dumbbell or a plate all of which can be found on our Fit Store.
