15% Off Any Meal Plan

Hello fitnation! I'm back with yet another workout.  I hope you all enjoyed the feeling feirce workout, I know I did! It was tougher than it looked on paper, thats for sure!  This new workout is a BEAST!  Hence the name "Beast Mode" You'll be doing 3-5 rounds depending on your fitness level. This workout really targets your abs/core! You should be feeling the after effects of this one the next day! Tip: when doing ab exercises DON'T HOLD YOUR BREATH!   For added muscle recruitment, exhaling forcefully as you exert, even pausing for a moment at the top of the sit-up, involves maximal abdominal muscle fiber involvement as they contract to help the lungs expel the air.
