Jillian Michaels’ Core Workout

First things first: “You can’t spot-reduce fat,” says Jillian Michaels. “You must burn calories to burn fat while you condition your abs.” That said, the exercises here—a sneak peek from Jillian’s newest DVD, Jillian Michaels Killer Abs, out in September— are meant to complement your existing workout routine twice a week. “The  combination targets every muscle in your abdominal wall,” she says. Do all four moves, and then repeat the entire sequence two more times. “If you’re eating properly and doing your other training three or four times a week for 30 minutes, you’ll notice a difference by the second week,” promises Jillian.

Stand with your feet about three feet apart, with your right foot pointing forward and your left foot pointing sideways; hold eightpound weights at your sides. Extend your right arm overhead (a), then reach the left weight toward your left ankle (b). Go as far as you can, then reverse to return to standing. That’s one rep. Do 15, then repeat on the other side.
quick tip
If this move is too challenging, start with lighter weights, but increase the number of reps to 20.

Get into an elbow plank position. Raise your right arm in front of you so it’s parallel to the ground and lift your left leg at least two inches (a). “Fly” your arm and leg out, moving them away from your head and body (b), then reverse back to the starting position. Drop down, then repeat with the opposite arm and leg. That’s one rep. Do 15.

1/ Side Plank with Alternating Leg Raise
Get into a side plank with your hand directly under your shoulder and your bottom leg slightly in front of your top leg (a), then slowly kick your bottom leg forward as far as you can. Tap the toes of your bottom foot with your top hand, then repeat with your top leg (b). That’s one rep. Do 15, then switch to the other side to complete one set. Lie facedown on the ground with your arms and legs extended, then lift your arms, chest, and legs off the ground (a). Without touching the ground with your hands, use your core to roll onto your back (b). Simultaneously raise your arms and legs into a pike crunch so they meet above the center of your belly (c). Lower your arms and legs, then roll back to start and repeat. Do 15.
