After a weekend of excess, treat yourself to a 20-minute fat-burning ab workout with YouTube star and yogi Adriene Mishler
Over the long Easter weekend there's a good chance we'll be diving into the chocolate and taking a few days off from working out while the gym is closed or we're travelling. And there's no harm in indulging once and a while but if you do want to add a little bit of fitness to your Easter plans, we have just the thing.
Who better to turn to for something quick yet effectibe than the people's favourite yogi aka Adriene Mishler? The Texan-native has amassed over 4 million subscribers to her Yoga with Adriene YouTube channel thanks to her popular videos that she films at home, including "7-minute Bedtime Yoga" which has had over 5 million views.
Mishler's latest installment is a gut-busting workout for your core that builds strength and flexibility, as well as generating blood flow around the body. The Total Body Yoga - Deep Core video takes us through breathing exercises to start before starting the practice with gentle bridge exercises to engage the hamstrings, lower back, abdominals and glutes. Instead of stomach crunches, Mishler encourages dead bug sit-ups, which targets the lower abdominals.
While the routine may look tough, Mishler's calming tone helps to keep you relaxed - even her pet pooch finds a moment of calm near the mat as the yogi does the moves. After engaging all the muscles with deep breathing, the workout goes into a sweet vinyasa flow before ending with mindful mountain climbers and gratitude.
The workout is perfect for anyone wanting to squeeze a session in during a busy weekend of indulgence. With the number of eggs I'll be inhaling, this 20-minute practice is perfect for tightening those stomach muscles. See you on the mat.
