All exercises listed:

Here’s a quick check list so once you know all the exercises you can just skip to this bit.

10 crunches bending and stretching the right leg

10 crunches with the right leg stretched to the ceiling

10 crunches bending and stretching the left leg

10 crunches with the left leg stretched to the ceiling

3 rounds of crunches in the circle – right diagonal, middle, left diagonal, middle

10 times doing the bridge – lifting your hips up, lifting your heels, lowering your heels and lowering your hips.

10 times on all fours lifting the right leg up and down

10 times on all fours lifting the left leg up and down

And that’s it! You’ll be done in around five minutes. If you don’t have a yoga mat then you can use a towel instead. Please note that only doing this workout won’t magically give you abs or a bum like JLo, it depends on your nutrition and if you do any other exercise as well – but this workout will of course help you reach your goals! I hope you enjoy my mini workout and I would love to hear what you think of it 🙂
