Alphabet for Abs of Steel!!!

by Jenette Morrow
(Montesano, WA USA)

I found the best workout I've ever done, and still do, in a magazine about 5 years ago. It's a twist on leg lifts that takes away from the boredom of a normal ab workout.

I believe the magazine was "Shape" and it was one of the ab workouts that they got from a female celebrity. It had been taught to her by her trainer.

I was 34 at the time I started doing this workout. I was a bartender that worked with a bunch of beautiful younger women in a bar whose theme was based around beautiful girls with beautiful bodies.

So at 34 I had my work cut out for me. Oh yeah, I have four children too, so I truly needed a miracle.

This workout was my miracle. When all was said and done I looked as good if not better in a half shirt than the other girls.

The first thing you need to do is lie on your back with legs straight and toes pointed toward the ceiling. Then raise your legs and lift them to a 45 degree angle.

Then simply start tracing the letters of the alphabet. Do not let your feet touch the ground in between letters.

You start with a capital A and as you finish the letter then just smoothly go into tracing a capital B.

My favorite part of this workout is that it is not boring. You are so busy concentrating on the letters that you don't realize how much of a workout you're actually getting until your ab's start burning.

There are a lot of ways to change or alter this workout to your advancing level. When my physical shape improved I started to go through the alphabet forward and then I would go directly into doing it backwards.

I would also trace each letter backwards to change it up even more. My stomach slimmed out and shaped up so nicely that I looked better than I had in 10 years.

If all you want to do is slim up and shape your midsection this move is great. However if you are looking to bulk up and get a defined six pack or even an eight pack just add some ankle weights.

I am now almost 40 and still do this workout. I believe I will always do it because it really changed my life. I know it will always help me look the best I can and who doesn't want to look good? LOL
