RevAbs™ Fitness Challenge: Bençao Push Kick Sit-Ups
Trainer Brett Hoebel has designed RevAbs using many of the disciplines he’s mastered himself, including the Brazilian art of capoeira. Check out this abdominal exercise from RevAbs—and click here for even more of Brett’s cool moves.
Begin by lying on your back. Bend your knees and place your feet on the floor, bringing your arms to your chest.
Inhale deeply as you perform a sit-up, drawing your left knee into your chest. Keep your foot flexed and your hands up, as shown.
“Fire Your Abs” as you push your left leg out, leading with your heel, and sweep your right arm across your chest to block. Your left arm extends left, ‘protecting’ you from the left. Return to starting position. Alternate 8 on each side for 16 reps (total time: 60 seconds).
Trainer Tip: This exercise is adapted from capoiera. It’s offensive, defensive, and all abs exercise!
