As obviously dated as this video is, this abs routine still challenges my core! I first did this routine 7 years ago everyday for 4 months straight (was toning up for a pageant) and didn’t revisit again until today. Man, I missed my gang in their awesome spandex gear. I don’t know who this guy is and what he’s doing now, but this is one of the best full-length ab workouts you can get for free on youtube. I always get a sweet burning sensation in my upper abs afterward. 8 Min abs is a real classic. I think I’m going for round 2 tonight!

Oh and totally new discovery…I had no idea there was a whole 8 Minute series! When I searched for 8 Min Abs, I saw 8 Min Arms, Legs, Buns, and Stretch! No way! I smiled and almost died. I can’t wait to try these out. Here’s the playlist of the whole thing if you’re interested: 8 Min Workouts from the 80s

Good luck! Let me know how you like it.

    I really enjoyed how he kept saying, “gang.” It reminded me of Saved By The Bell, which is never a bathing to be reminded of!

    Hey Cassey!

    I have done this video twice now and was wondering on how to not use your neck when doing these workouts. I researched this issue and it said to open up your neck by inhaling and touching your tongue to the roof of your mouth and then exhale making a HA sound and tongue is not on the roof of your mouth. I did this the second time around and I went slower and my neck is decent for right now (don’t know about the next day yet). Any suggestions on how to prevent neck strain?

    Hahaha I used to do 8 minute abs when I was in college too! It’s a classic.

    Omg hahaha I used to do the 8 min series videos when I was in college! They were seriously effective and especially helpful with my heavy class load (too bad there wasn’t Blogilates yet!). I can’t believe you mentioned this in your blog! Brings back great memories. I’m currently using Blogilates to try to get back my toned college bod ;)
