abs today we are almost there we have about five seconds left keep breathing three two one and down shake it out like i said planking and all these movements are really a full body workout but i really wanted you to use your mind to focus on your core so we’re burning out our abs next exercise is a plank twist so it’s gonna be a high plank and we’re alternating our twist here we go and work
