NEW 5-minute Ab Workout

Lots of the usual suspects….

Standard breakfast:


Work clothes ready to go, 

and getting things together for the morning. 


I leave tomorrow for my race -plus a special short trip that’s been included on top of that, more details to come- and I haven’t done anything to get ready. In standard Gina fashion, I’ll be throwing clothes into a suitcase at 10pm tonight hoping that somehow I’ll be able to make outfits out of them. The good news is that I’m only taking one “real” outfit- everything else is workout clothes. Matching is optional 😉

Since it’s almost the weekend, here’s an ab burner! (Like how I made it sound like a gift? Haha)

Ab burner

We all have 5 minutes to spare. Add in this little blitz before bed, as a break from work, or in addition to today’s workout-  feel free to repeat for extra credit 😉


(I provided some modifications along the way, but as always, check with a doc before making any fitness changes. Honor your body and your injuries)

If you try it, please leave a comment to let me know how it goes! <3



Something to talk about: Are you good at packing for trips? It’s funny because sometimes I’m super organized, and other times I’m a last-minute slacker. Usually if I make it for the flight on time, I consider it a win, and the funny thing is that one of my most well-planned trips was the flight I did alone with Liv. I’m still not quite sure how that happened. Anyone else have upcoming trips planned? I’m dying to take Liv to Disneyland, but am trying to wait until she’ll enjoy it more. 

Something to think:

    I would always do traditional crunch exercises on an exercise ball or bozu, it allows your thoracic to flex and extend which is really important. Another things i always coach my client on is engaging the core, this a great article

    The plank routine towards the end is really nice though I’m going to steal that for my clients this week, so thanks 🙂
