Let’s get started:

Exercise 2: The circle.
Which muscles you’re training: rectus abdominis (six pack), transversus abdominis (deep muscle), internal oblique and external oblique muscles (side stomach muscles).
Exercise 3: The bridge
Which muscles you’re training: rectus abdominis, transversus abdominis, errector spinae (back muscle), gluteus maximus and minimus (bum muscles), hamstrings (back of your thigh), gastrocnemius (calf muscle) and hip adductors.
Exercise 4: On all fours
Which muscles you’re training: rectus abdominis, gluteus maximus and minimus, hamstrings.

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 🙂
