Every Day Ab Routine

Hello Colourful Palate readers! Nice to meet ya! My name is Carissa. Yes, there are multiple tall, blonde, healthy-minded “Charissa/Carissa” bloggers! Craziness!

I’m honored Charissa asked me to guest post. She posted for me last summer when we were on vacation and I’m happy to return the favor.  I love her delicious recipes and gorgeous photos!

Here’s a little bit about me – my husband and I blog at Fit2Flex. We are both certified personal trainers with a passion for healthy, active living, and clean eating.  I am also studying to become a registered dietitian, I work as a race announcer, and I’m a FitFluential Ambassador and runner.  Stop on by our blog for workouts, meal plans, fit tips, and recipes.

Ab Workout 01

My husband and I live in sunny Orlando, Florida. You could argue that here it’s always “swimsuit season”. It was 90 this Christmas!

However, some places still spend several months a year bundled up…if you abs aren’t quite ready for a swimsuit don’t worry.  We’ve created an every day ab routine for all of you Colourful Palate readers.

It’s important to remember that ABS ARE MADE IN THE KITCHEN!

To be brutally honest, no amount of sit-ups will help you have a six-pack if you are hiding it under excess body fat.  If you commit to clean, balanced eating and a workout routine that includes cardio, weights, and these ab moves, I am confident that you can approach summer with a flat stomach that makes you feel good.

Every Day Ab Routine 01

Abdominals are one muscle group that can be worked every day.  You can do this routine all the way through if you have the proper equipment. You can also do exercises 1, 3, 5 and home and exercises 2, 4, 6 on days when you are in the gym.  The odd numbered exercises are “easier” to do and a good place to start if you are a beginner.

I wish you good luck and good eats!

Carissa and Kyle 01

Love and abs of steel,

Carissa & Kyle

Note from Charissa: Thank you Carissa for this great ab workout! I can’t wait to try it! I think it’s so neat that she and her husband both are personal trainers – you can check out her website for more fitness routines!

Like Carissa mentioned, I think it’s fun that there are other super-tall  bloggers out there..the other day Carissa, Lindsay, and myself were tweeting about it. We’ve totally got a tall girl club formed!
