6 Minutes to Amazing Abs

Better abs in less time.

Great abs take hard work, but not long work. Instead of crunching for minute after minute, striving for length, we’ve created a quick ab workout to hit all of the major areas in your core, but also deliver a burn in a short amount of time. When it burns, you’ll know it’s working.

In addition to crunches, you’ll be adding in jacknifes, toe touches, heel touches, leg lifts, flutter kicks, and a Russian twist. This variety of exercises will leave no area of your core overlooked!

Equipment Needed: yoga mat, 1 medium dumbbell (8-12lbs), Interval Timer (Gymboss is a free app download)

What to Do: Perform each exercise for 45 seconds with no rest period in between. Perform this routine 3 times per week to get amazing abs. As your abs get stronger, add on more rounds and rest for 1 minute in between each round.

Beginner’s Level: 1 round
Intermediate Level: 2 rounds
Advanced Level: 3 rounds
