10 Minute AB Workout
Here is a 10-minute ab workout that you can do at home:
- Crunches (1 minute): Lie on your back with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor. Place your hands behind your head or cross them over your chest. Lift your head, shoulders, and upper back off the ground and then slowly lower back down.
- Bicycle crunches (1 minute): Lie on your back with your knees bent and your hands behind your head. Lift your head, shoulders, and upper back off the ground and bring your left elbow to your right knee while extending your left leg. Switch sides and bring your right elbow to your left knee while extending your right leg. Continue alternating sides.
- Russian twists (1 minute): Sit on the ground with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor. Lean back slightly and lift your feet off the ground. Hold a weight or a water bottle with both hands in front of your chest. Twist your torso to the right and then to the left, tapping the weight or water bottle on the ground beside you.
- Plank (1 minute): Get into a push-up position with your hands directly under your shoulders and your body in a straight line from head to heels. Hold this position for one minute, keeping your core tight and your back flat.
- Side plank (30 seconds on each side): Lie on your side with your elbow directly under your shoulder and your legs extended. Lift your hips off the ground and hold for 30 seconds. Switch sides and repeat.
- Leg raises (1 minute): Lie on your back with your hands by your sides or under your hips for extra support. Lift your legs straight up towards the ceiling and then slowly lower them back down without touching the ground.
- Reverse crunches (1 minute): Lie on your back with your knees bent and your hands by your sides. Lift your hips off the ground and pull your knees towards your chest. Slowly lower back down.
