5 minute Ab workout!

No time on your hands this week to work out..? Here’s the 5 minute Ab workout, which takes no time at all, but will give you excellent results!


Alternating Superman Plank: Get in the plank position. Keep your core tight. Raise your right arm and left leg so they are parallel to the ground. This is one rep. Alternate sides.

Bicycle Crunch/Vertical Leg Crunch: Lay on back, hands behind head. When you crunch up towards your bent left knee, your right leg should be extended out and not touching the ground. Switch sides, crunching over towards the right with your left leg extended. Continue in a fluid, cycling motion. After one set, alternate with Vertical Leg Crunch – try to touch your toes.

Russian Twist: Grab a medicine ball, dumbbell, or weight plate and sit on the floor with your hips and knees bent 90 degrees. Hold the weight straight out in front of you and keep your back straight (your torso should be at about 45 degrees to the floor). Explosively twist your torso as far as you can to the left and then reverse the motion, twisting as far as you can to the right. Lift your feet off the floor for added difficulty, engaging your core. That’s one rep, do 3 sets of 8-12 at the end of your workout.

Knee Up Twist: Set up in full plank position with your hands underneath your shoulders and legs long. Pull your right knee in to your nose (make sure you pull your abdominals up and away from your thigh). Transition to a side plank, putting all the weight into your right arm, turning to the inside of the left foot and reaching left arm to the sky. Continue to pull right knee to nose.

Lower the left hand and return to plank with knee drawn in, then externally rotate leg to open knee to right. Try to get the right leg parallel to the floor. Hold for a moment and return to start, step back to plank and repeat with opposite leg. Alternate legs for 15 -20 reps.
