Hey, we have all been there. You are “crunched” (pun intended) on time and just don’t think you can make it to the gym for your workout, right?
Well, just remember you can always get a quick and effective short workout done in the comfort of your own home! So jump over that hurdle and get in a quick abs sweat session!
Below is a core routine that just about anyone can perform at home. And it only takes 10 minutes of your time!
A1) Bicycle Crunches
A2) Raised Knee Crunches
A3) Toe Touches
B1) Leg Lifts
B2) Flutter Kicks
B3) Single Legged Plank
Each of these exercises will be performed Tabata style. Tabata is a great way to get the heart rate up and burn a large amount of calories in a short amount of time. To be more specific, you will perform this workout in the following manner:
- Start with exercises A1 – A3 for the first round: Do Bicycle crunches for 20 seconds, then take 10 seconds of rest. After those 10 seconds of rest, do 20 seconds of raised knee crunches and follow with 10 seconds of rest. Then perform 20 seconds of toe touches, take 10 seconds of rest and cycle through those three exercises twice more.
- After going through exercises A1 – A3 three times each, you can then move on to the second block of exercises, B1 – B3. You will perform exercises B1 – B3 in the same manner as described above for A1 – A3.
By performing the routine in this matter, you will do each exercise three times each for 20 seconds and a total of 60 seconds per exercise. This workout amounts to a total of 9 minutes of time with 6 minutes of exercise and only 3 minutes of rest.
This is an effective and quick abdominal workout that just about anyone is able to perform! Give it a try, you will be surprised at how solid of an abs workout this is!
You’re gonna have that tight and toned core in no time, keep it up!
