You Can Totally Toast Your Core in 10 Minutes With This Home Ab Workout
This is a quick ab workout we did in my CrossFit class that totally toasted my core! Focus on correct form above all else, said Champlain Valley CrossFit coach Laura Matuszak. It's just 10 minutes, so rest if you need to if fatigued muscles begin to compromise your form, but then get right back into it. This incorporates mostly bodyweight moves, so it's the perfect workout to do at home, on vacation, or anywhere where you don't have access to gym equipment.
10-Minute Ab Workout
Equipment needed: Sliders or paper plates if you're on carpet, or two hand towels if you're on a wood floor
Directions: After a five-minute dynamic warmup, do 40 seconds of each of the moves ahead, followed by a 20-second rest. Repeat twice. If you can't keep your leg straight for V-ups, do tuck crunches with the knees bent instead. If you don't have enough room to do the plank walk with sliders, do mountain climbers. After the workout, be sure to stretch your abs by doing Cobra pose.
