"Jennifer Aniston has one of the most coveted Hollywood bodies at the age of 43! Flaunting them on the cover of magazines and in advertisements, it’s no wonder people are dying to know how she gets her abs to look like that! In this video, I’m going to show you a few moves that according to her trainer, Mandy Ingber, are Jen’s favorite exercises. They all have a Pilates or Yoga influence.

Jennifer is also a runner. She does cardio most days of the week for 30-40 minutes. And remember, most flat bellies are made in the kitchen. Even if you follow these moves and get in your cardio, without a clean and sensible diet, results will be hard to see.

Side Plank Dip: Lift up into a side plank resting on your forearm. Hold for 3 seconds, dip your hip down towards the ground and raise it right back up. Repeat 10 times, switch sides and repeat.
Crescent Lunge: Start in a high lunge position with weight in the front heel. Bring back knee in towards chest, squeeze abs in towards lower back and return to high plank position. Repeat 10 times on the same leg, switch and repeat.
Plank Cross: Starting in high plank position, bring right knee to left elbow. Hold for 3 counts, and return to start. Repeat this move bringing the left knee to the right elbow. Repeat 10 times.
3-legged Dog: Start in high plank position. Lift left leg up off of the ground and bring left knee in towards forehead. Cinch waist as knee and forehead meet and then return to start. Repeat 9 more reps on the left side. Without resting, repeat on the right side for 10 more reps.

Repeat these 4 ab moves for a total of 3 sets in conjuction with 30-40 minutes of running or preferred cardio. Enjoy!”  -Sarah

Yoga positions, called asanas, are the basic physical part of a yoga practice. Although yoga poses are a type of exercise for your body, they are also much more. The word yoga itself is from Sanskrit, an ancient Indian language, and refers to the union of mind and spirit. Yoga began in India more than 3,000 years ago and is still practiced today for the health of the mind, body, and spirit. A morning yoga practice is a great way to get energized for the day ahead.
