This lady knows her stuff, including how to make your abs burn like hell.

By Lauren Mazzo

Here's the thing about working out your abs: You need to mix it up. That's why trainer Emily Skye (@emilyskyefit), put together this epic workout that'll have you going up, down, in, out, and sideways to hit every angle of your core.

ICYMI, Emily is a Reebok Global Ambassador, creator of the F.I.T. guides, and the ultimate social media fitpsiraiton-she's not afraid to get totally real (especially on Snapchat), including admitting that gaining 28 pounds made her happier than ever. Pair this ab workout with her kettlebell workout for a better butt or these five HIIT moves you can do anywhere, and you're sure to feel the burn.

How It Works: Grab a mat (if you're on a hard floor) and do 10 to 15 reps of each move for 2 to 3 sets (depending on how hard you want to work). Don't forget to include dance breaks and whip out your silliest "ow" face mid-set, à la Emily. (Just scroll through her IG to see what we mean.)

Leg Lower

A. Lie faceup on the floor with hands behind head, feet extending straight up toward the ceiling. Press back into the ground, drawing belly button toward spine.

B. Lower straight legs toward the ground. Stop once before lower back starts lifting off the ground.

C. Draw knees in and extend legs toward the ceiling to return to starting position.

Twisting V-Up

A. Sit with legs extended and hands flat on the floor slightly behind hips. Tuck pelvis, engage core, and lean back slightly to lift legs to hover off the ground.

B. Draw knees and torso in and to the left, then extend out to starting position.

C. Draw knees and torso in and to the right, then extend out to starting position.


A. Start in a high plank position.

B. Squeezing glutes and keeping head neutral, draw the right foot forward to tap right shin to left wrist.

C. Return to high plank, then repeat on the other side. Continue quickly alternating sides, keeping hips stable and pushing away from the ground with hands.

Plank Rotation

A. Start in a high plank position.

B. Roll over to the left, balancing on left hand and outside of left foot in a side plank.

C. Return to high plank, then repeat on the opposite site. Continue rotating back and forth to each side, moving through high plank.

Modified Burpee

A. Stand with feet wider than hip-width apart.

B. Squat down to place palms flat on floor in between feet, then hop feet back to high plank.

C. Immediately hop feet up outside hands in a low squat position, and stand, engaging core at the top.

Aliquam officiis aut quos. 💖 Ever heard of the Keto diet? I started using the advice at WWW.KETOCOOKBOOK.ORG and lost 25 pounds of fat in a month! I’ve never lost weight so fast!! The Keto Diet really is amazing because it forces the body to always burn fat for energy — so you lose the fat and keep it off. If you want to lose some weight, I highly recommend using that website :) Check it out! Best of luck to you! 💖

Hi, my name is Kate and I would like to share my story. Up until about 2 years ago, I was 30 pounds overweight. Over the years I had followed many different diet plans, but failed every single time. I was "blessed" with a pear shaped body and no matter what i did, I always retained lots of stubborn fat in my lower body. Everything changed when I found the right diet program.
