From hitting the beach to morning runs, warm weather can help get people outdoors, as the higher temperatures make for more comfortable activities. Once outside, layers are shed and more skin is visible in an attempt to stay cool in the heat. Thus, aesthetics factor more heavily into the diet and workout plans for many individuals.

Few celebrities have shared this sentiment more emphatically in 2019 than Halle Berry. In a recent post on her Instagram feed, the Hollywood A-lister gushed enthusiasm and implicit exhaustion for what she called “AB season,” writing:

Spring is in the air, and while @peterleethomas and I know how to have a good time, this sh** is no laughing matter – because it’s officially AB season y’all. My abs already know what time it is, and now it’s your turn. This #FitnessFriday, check stories for 5 ab shredding workouts that strengthen your foundation (because let’s face it, your core is EVERYTHING) and up ya beach swagger in the summer months.

In an article posted last week, Pop Sugar author Tamara Pridgett detailed the news and workouts, writing:

They say you should always ask for what you want, and it looks like our prayers for a Halle Berry ab workout were finally answered. Halle, aka Ms. Fitness Friday, just shared five of her favorite ab-sculpting workouts on Instagram, and we are hyped. …

Halle Berry’s Ab-Shredding Workout

  • Ab wheel rollout: 10 to 12 reps
  • Single-leg walkout push-up: 10 to 12 reps
  • Partner plank shift: 10 to 12 reps (up and back)
  • Hollow rock: 30 to 60 seconds
  • Partner leg taps: 10 to 12 reps

Celebrities can often feel larger than life to average janes and joes. When someone as famous as Berry shares in the struggle, it helps remind people that the challenges of staying fit exist for everyone and, more importantly, they are worth enduring.
