This week has been absolutely nut-burger! Like in a really good, but crazy kind of way; 2016 is off to such an epic start for Nourish Move Love. I have so many exciting projects and announcements in the works you guys that I’m dying to share with you {keeping secrets is so hard for me}.

But one thing I can share with you is that I won the Twin Cities Live potluck club contest. Yay! So I filmed with the lovely Kelli Hanson this week, and my cherry wild rice salad with spinach and walnuts will be featured on Twin Cities Live January 28th {tune in}.

So between filming, updating the blog {check out my new menu and about page}, meetings, teaching classes, getting lost in camera research {i’m getting a new camera!}, doing yoga with ‘the Rachel Brathen’ {@yoga_girl on instagram}, and a couple other surprises I can’t share quite yet — it’s been a great week. I feel super accomplished but also very behind; hence writing this blog at 8pm the night before it goes live while sipping a chia tea and eating the Starbuck’s Spinach Egg and Feta wrap for dinner. Just one of those days, but I do recommend the wrap if you’re in a pinch and starving while at Starbucks {no it’s not 100% clean but close enough for tonight}.

On that note, who doesn’t love to feel accomplished? Am I right? How does crunching 500 ab reps into less than 10 minutes sound for accomplishment? This barre-inspired ab series is the perfect routine to add to any workout to slim, cinch and sculpt your abs. I recommend adding this to your regular workout routine 3-4 times per week. 

The Workout: Best Barre Exercises for Flat Abs {Barre 100 Ab Series}

This is a real barre ab burner consisting of 5 exercises, 20 repetitions per exercise x 5 sets. That adds up to 100 repetitions per exercises for a total of 500 repetitions. And the first two exercises included stretching with core work making it the perfect way to start or finish any workout.

If 500 repetitions seems a little out of your range, scale back and aim for 100, 200, 300, or 400 repetitions total. Keep striving for a few more repetitions each time you do this and slowly work your way up to 500 {#yesyoucan}.

  1. My abs hurt just looking at this post! Seriously…..epic week for you my friend!!

  2. This workout looks awesome and intense! My classes always want extra ab work, so I might need to sneak this routine in one day at the end of class!!

    • Yes getting all 500 reps in is a bit intense but my favorite way to end my barre classes! I’m sure your class will love you for sneaking it in 🙂 I know mine always does – ha!
