"But it hurts to work out."
I did this six minute abs workout and ow! ow! ow! ow! ow! ow!......I was very verbal during this workout as my weak abs woke up and realized I was asking them to do things that hadn't been done in years.
I cried out in pain so loud my daughter ran down the stairs and said, "Mom, it sounds like you are giving birth!"
#1: How would she know?
#2: How would I know? C-sections spared me from the trauma of natural child birth.
But this workout below generates the good kind of pain, and it can be modified it to your level of pain tolerance....take it slow, do a few less reps, rest a little longer between moves....it's up to you.
The whole routine goes quickly I promise.
Pain is not an excuse to not exercise. When I feel the burn, I know something is working.
It feels so good to have done it. And the pain is temporary. Forgettable. Much like labor is, I am told.
