Rachel Weisz Workout Wednesday Routine = Abs

  • 1 hour cardio on Treadmill (@2% Incline)
  • 30 min weightlifting: Abs Focus
  • flow yoga

Here’s the Wednesday Abs Focus weightlifting routine. It starts with the Treadmill Cardio/Abs Routine. Rachel Weisz’s trainer, Gregory Joujon-Roche suggests using a heart monitor to make sure you’re at the correct heart rate levels.

  1. Do 20 minutes on Treadmill (@2% Incline)
  2. After 10 minutes, make sure you’re heart rate is @75%
  3. After 20 minutes, stop and do these three core abs exercises: (Ab Circuit)
  4. Accordion Crunches
  5. Side Bridges
  6. Supermans
  7. 2 minutes treadmill @ 85% heart rate (160 BPM)
  8. Repeat Ab Circuit: (4 sets: Abs/2min/Abs/2min/Abs/2min/Abs/5min)
  9. Do 2 minute sprint between each ab circuit
  10. After 4th set of abs, end with run on treadmill (8% incline) for 5 minutes

For the abs, Gregory Joujon-Roche wants you to go to failure. Instead of having a certain number of reps in mind, just do sets of each circuit until you feel “you’ve killed it.”

Abs/Core workout:

  1. Plank Extensions
  2. Elbow Side Planks
  3. V-Ups
  4. Bicycle Crunches
  5. Pelvic Thrusts
  6. Weighted Decline Sit-ups
  7. Hip Flexions with a Punch

The Rachel Weisz workout is all about the core. Counting reps isn’t what’s important. You want to get as many reps in as you can. Rachel Weisz’s trainer, Greg Joujon-Roche wants you to reach a breakthrough moment. He says:

In the breakthrough moment, you teeter on the edge of failure, because you’re not sure that you can perform even one more rep. Your muscles say you can’t. Your mind says you can. Who wins?
