The Slender Set: Plank & Crunches

It occurred to me the other day that it’s been a hot minute since I’ve posted a Slender Set workout. In case you’re a new reader or just need a refresher, these are workouts based on muscle groups that are set to music. Put the right song on and even someone as exercise disinclined as myself (it’s true) will want to get their sweat on.

Since I’m doing this, I might as well be on-trend and, let’s be honest, nothing is more in vogue right now than Miley. Her new album just came out and while I’m not completely sold on the quasi-pop/rap trend throughout, Do My Thang is a song I can get down with. And by “get down with” I mean do three minutes of ab workouts to.
