It’s Day 9. Every Tuesday is an ab-focused workout. This one is something you know. Take advantage of this familiarity. Go harder and faster. There’s Extra Credit, too.


Day 9: Abs Ain’t Easy
Repeat the workout from last Tuesday.

  1. Bird Dog – Opposite Arm/Leg
  2. Stationary High Knee Run
  3. Lying Toe Touch – Opposite Arm/Leg
  4. Stationary High Knee Run
  5. Squat Thrusts with a jump (no pushup)
  6. Stationary High Knee Run
  7. High Plank Under Body Toe Touch – Opposite Arm/Leg
  8. Stationary High Knee Run
  9. Butterfly Sit Ups
  10. Stationary High Knee Run

Try to complete more reps than last week. For the demo and details on repetitons, visit Day 2.

Extra Credit: Complete a forearm plank hold for as long as possible. Record your time. Take a break. And do it again. See if you can hold it as long as you did the first time.

@FVR. Great job! I’m glad you’re still here.

FVR · 08/01/2013 at 9:19 pm

Done! I did a few more than last time — 5 complete sets and up to 11 butterfly situps. 2:34 on the first plank and then 1:32. I can barely type this right now.

@Nomi. Great!

Angel · 07/25/2013 at 3:15 pm

@Emily. You are a plank boss.

Emily · 07/25/2013 at 11:12 am

I completed five sets – which is one half set more than I did the last time. I held my first plank for 2:30 and the second for 2:15!

Nomi · 07/24/2013 at 9:40 pm

I am done. I completed just shy of 5 sets (had 15 more butterfly sit-ups to go. I held the plank for 2:03 the first time and 2:09 the second. Woo I’m going to sleep great tonight!

Angel · 07/24/2013 at 6:24 pm

@Badiyah. Nice.

Michelle N. · 07/24/2013 at 3:13 pm

Did 4 sets, but no extra credit. I will give it a try later and post the results.

Badiyah · 07/24/2013 at 1:58 pm

Did 3 sets of this workout and the extra credit. Did 1 min for the first plank and 1:05 the second. It felt like my body was stuck to my bed this morning. My entire body HURT SO GOOD!!!!

Nomi · 07/24/2013 at 9:25 am

I’ll be doing this and the baseline workout today.

Quynn · 07/24/2013 at 9:16 am

Oh lawd I can only get thru 1 round. Code 10. Got my 2 miles in and my fastest mile was 9:14 (shouldn’t have eaten that apple right before my run) I’m a day behind, but i’m catching up. I think I’ll double up.

Carrie · 07/23/2013 at 10:01 pm

Three rounds of abs and no chocolate for day nine.

Monica · 07/23/2013 at 9:20 pm

Finished! I noticed this week I have a little more energy than last time and didn’t take as many breaks!

Shem · 07/23/2013 at 9:11 pm

Done I guess I did better because I did not cheat anyway 2 rotations in 20 min

Victoria · 07/23/2013 at 9:05 pm

Done. It was still tough like last week, but this week I did less modifications and completed more exercises during the workout.

Devon · 07/23/2013 at 8:57 pm

Complete! Brutal!

Quynn · 07/23/2013 at 8:34 pm

woohoo I got my Team Eshe shirt in the mail. Can’t wait to rock it. Gotta finish this workout though

Darlene · 07/23/2013 at 6:26 pm
