If You're Wearing a Crop Top For Halloween, This Workout Is For You
Listen, Halloween is going to be here before you know it, and you don't want to be trying on your costume on Oct. 30 and thinking, "I don't feel confident." So let's prepare (physically AND mentally). Since crop tops account for approximately 84 percent of trending Halloween costumes (I actually just made that up, but you know what I'm saying), we've devised a crop-top-ready workout to get your abs strong and your mindset confident.
These moves target the obliques to whittle your middle, and the rectus abdominis (aka the six pack zone) to get you so much more than crop-top-ready. You're going to feel like a total queen when you slide on that costume and head to your next party, because few things compare to the awesomeness that is doing something good for your body.
While you're challenging your core in plank, turn up the volume with a bit of fat-burning cardio jumps. All that fat burning away will reveal your chiseled core, and let's be honest, that's why we're all here.
Push-Up Head Tap
Look, we know push-ups are hard enough on their own, and no, we're not trying to torture you. But this slight twist will work your obliques, whittling your waist while working your arms all at once. You're gonna like the way you look, we guarantee it.
Sliding Mountain Climbers
Use hand towels or slider discs in this challenging take on core-strengthening mountain climbers. Bring your knees to the opposite elbow for more oblique activation.
Side Plank March
Your obliques will both love and hate you for this, but let's not forget that this move also totally works your legs (and will make you a better runner, if you're into that sort of thing).
Sliding Elbow Plank
One of the best moves to lean out your abdomen is this sliding elbow plank. Use slider discs, paper plates, or hand towels, and get ready to work that core. All eyes will be on your lean, mean abs when you rock that crop top.
