Next, let’s Binge on some abs…standing up style:
Before you start, be sure to have enough room around you to really get a great workout in.
Standing Knee Cross Crunch
1. Stand tall with one arm reaching the sky and the other on your hip

2. Bring that same arm towards your opposite leg which will be meeting your elbow half way as you raise it up past your belly button. Bring your knee as high as you can and attempt to have your elbow touch the top of your knee.

3. Return back to your stand position with the same arm to the sky.

Repeat this motion for about 20-30 seconds.
– After your first set, rest for 15 seconds and reverse your action with the other side of the body.
– Challenge yourself to 3 total sets on both sides of the body.

Let’s get the whole body burning:
For those not familiar with a kettlebell, here is what one looks like.

Using a kettlebell or a weighted plate (preferably a kettlebell)

Here’s the challenge: 4 sets for 45 seconds 
Kettlebell Swing:
Grab the kettlebell (or substitute) by the handle with both hands and make sure to have a firm grip.
Keeping your back as straight as possible, go into a squat position and swing the kettlebell with control just below and past your bottom area and explode back up swinging your body back to a standing position without ever bending your back.
