35-Minute Total Body Abs Circuit
This Move-For-Joy session is a challenging total body workout that will tone and strengthen your core. You’ll get some cardio, some shoulder and butt work and TONS of abs. You don’t need any equipment for this workout BUT an optional BOSU ball makes it a little more fun and lets you advance the movements. Pick some fun music and have a blast, blasting your abs. This does include a warm-up but no cool down so please get that in on your own.

Move For Joy Suggestions
Remember, you can switch out any cardio/HIIT interval for a dance party--your body can burn up to 300 calories/hour dancing--so if burpees aren't your thing, bust a move.
Make this Move-For-Joy session your own by speeding up or slowing down your pace to the beat of the music. Varying your speed of abs or lunges or whatever move makes it more fun and the variety keeps it interesting.
Do your own favorite move. If something I'm doing in the video doesn't work for your body, do something else. As long as you are moving you are doing your body good!
