If you have had children in the past few years, you would have no doubt been subjugated to the rage-inspiring tones of Baby Shark. The overly-catchy song is an unavoidable curse that is slowly driving parents and babysitters insane, but a group of young gymnasts has found a way to make the tune not only enjoyable but useful.
The new Baby Shark Ab Workout sees you perform a different ab movement for each character in the song, from baby shark to grandpa shark and, as one personal trainer found out, it’s not as easy as it looks. Coming in at just 90 seconds long, the song won’t have you exercising for long, but it will most definitely get your abs pumping. To complete the Baby Shark Ab Workout, you need to follow the girls on the screen as they complete a serious of isolated midsection movements. The majority of the exercises are performed in a hollow-body hold, which as we all know, is practically torture on your abdominal muscles. You can also perform the movements in a V-Sit position with your legs and torso lifted off the ground.
There is a different ab exercise for each verse, keeping the workout fluid and targeted to all ab sections. As the personal trainer’s video demonstrates, switching between different core strength exercises in rapid succession will help to create a more immersive ab workout. In fact, the Baby Shark Ab Challenge, much like the song, is slowly taking the internet by storm. Users around the globe are getting in on the action, enjoying the benefits of a timed ab-demolishing workout they can perform at home.
If you are keen to beef up that midsection and feel completely inadequate at the same time, try to keep up with the girls in the video. While the pain in your abs will have you aching, don’t worry, you’ll be spurred on to complete the workout, powered solely by the unbridled sound rage that Baby Shark produces.
