Insta-Workouts: Ab Exercises You Can Copy Straight Off Instagram

 

Take this post with you on your next abs day!

 

 

The perks of following a fitness guru on Instagram are plenty: A quick scan of their feed can motivate you to hit the gym or inspire you to take on a healthier lifestyle. It’s also where you can pick up instructional videos of entire tried, tested and trusted fitness routines. Unlike traditional fitness videos you sign up for or order online, these insta-workouts are short, straight-to-the-point and play on a loop, so they’re perfect to have on-hand while at the gym. They’re also free (always a nice added bonus.)

 

Instead of keeping multiple videos on your saved posts on Instagram, however, try this single-page list for fitness routines you can just scroll through. And it’s all about abs this week.

 

Here, we round up ab circuits tailored by Krissy Cela, a London-based fitness enthusiast, third year law student and the brains, beauty and bod behind celasimplicity.co.uk.
