The Ultimate Medicine Ball Ab Workout

When I started working out after having my daughter, I dreamed of having abs again. Even though it seemed like a far fetched dream then, it is possible with the combination of a healthy diet and exercise. This medicine ball ab shredder workout will help melt belly fat and strengthen your core.

Since I’m heading to North Carolina in a few weeks, and will be spending most of the month of August in a bathing suit I’m trying to heat up my ab workouts. Adding this ab workout with your favorite cardio workout will maximize results. You can combine this with 7 Postpartum Workouts To Help You Lose the Baby weight, Anywhere Workout, Tank Top Arms Workout or my FREE 28-Day HIIT Challenge!

My daughter even loved watching me do this one!
