Ab Blast [Dorm Room Workout]

The one area of your body you can never work to much is your core. It helps with posture, stabilization, endurance, and overall bodily strength. Plus, I find that some good core exercises are the quickest way for me to feel cleansed and re-energized after a period of stress and sloppiness. And since I just finished finals, I am currently coming out on the other side of a few weeks of serious stress and sloppiness. So without further ado, a quick ab blast!
1. One legged plank

Start in a plank position. Pull your right knee in toward your chest, as far up as you can, and hold for 30 seconds. Repeat, holding the left knee in toward your chest. Make sure to think of pulling your bellybutton in toward your spine to engage your abs, pull your leg in farther, and support your back.
2. Toe touches

Lie on your back, and extend both legs straight up into the air. Curling your head, neck and shoulder blades off the ground, reach your hands toward your toes. Pulse 3o times, without lowering your head down until you are finished. If your back or hips feel strained, bend your knees slightly. To increase the difficulty, lower your legs down toward the floor a little bit, but do NOT do so if it hurts your back.
Repeat the entire series 3-5 times.
