Shona Vertue, David Beckham’s personal training shares the’spicy ‘abo workouts you can do at-home

The Australian personal trainer who got footballer David Beckham into yoga has shared the “snappy” abs workout she swears by for a toned and toned body.

Elite gymnast Shona Vertu, who hails from Sydney but lives in London, said you should never “neglect your obliques” if you want to get in shape.

The external oblique muscle is one of the outer abdominal muscles and extends from the lower half of the ribs around and down to the pelvis.

“Save this punchy abs workout and don’t neglect your obliques,” Shona said in a Instagram video with the workout you can do at home in your living room.

To try the workout yourself, the PT said all you need is a bench or something similar to hold on to and a workout mat so you can perform the moves on the floor.

On the first move, lie on your back with your hands holding onto the legs of the bench.

Next, perform reverse crunches by lifting your legs up and back off the floor before diving down and standing up again. Do this movement 30 times.

“This move targets your rectus abdominus and obliques,” Shona said.

This means it goes into your deep core muscles, where you get visible abs.

The second move involves the same setup, but then you just rotate your legs in a circle from top to bottom in a move called “around the world.”

“These also help with V-ups and hanging leg raises,” Shona said.

Again, repeat the movement 30 times, then rest and repeat the entire circuit.

“When performing one of these, your lats may try to take over,” she said.

“You can compensate for this by pushing away from the couch at the same time, trying to keep your armpits open — I know that sounds weird, but try it and let me know how it goes.”

Shona (pictured) previously said she sees too many fitness coaches telling the people they train to “earn their food,” “detox,” or “stop being lazy.”

Thousands who saw Shona’s video were impressed and said they would definitely try it at home.

‘I really like the first one! I can feel my side abs working!!’ one person noticed.

“I’m definitely going to do this tomorrow,” added another.

A third wrote: ‘Killer workout with killer view’.

Earlier, Shona shared the three things she would never say to a client at the gym when they’re looking for results.

She said she sees too many fitness coaches telling the people they train to “earn their food,” “detox,” or “stop being lazy.”

These phrases are all harmful and detrimental to success.

Shona also told Daily Mail Australia what many are doing wrong with their workouts.

“Many people fall into the trap of working on the things they are good at and neglecting the things their bodies really need,” she told FEMAIL.

“I’ve met countless people who can run marathons but can barely get through an easy weightlifting session. I have also met bodybuilders who are strong, but have no dexterity and can barely move.’

Shona recommends seeing “food as fuel” and thinking about what will “best nourish your body, mind, and soul for the day ahead”:

“Usually this comes from a huge plate of veggies, with some protein — but at other times — when the soul needs some nourishment — you might need a hot chocolate or an old-fashioned coffee,” she said.

But we shouldn’t deprive ourselves of things when we need them, because if “we don’t allow ourselves those soul-nurturing moments, they pile up and end up in the binge and restrict cycle.”

Shona’s own gym routine includes daily meditation before drinking coffee, lifting weights four times a week, high-intensity cardio twice a week, and a short set of yoga or gymnastics every night before bed.
