This quick abs workout is just doing abs in a flash. It lasts as the length of your favourite song: 3 minutes and 30 seconds (If your fav is not Justin Timberlake – What Goes Around Comes Around.) So we don’t have that much time, therefore every single movement counts. (It always does!!!) If you’re ready… roll out those mats and play your song. (I will listen to “Macklemore – We Danced“.)
Quick abs workout
This quick abs workout contain 2 moves to make sure we’re really attacking the lower belly as well as the transverse abdominals and the obliques. We’re gonna do 20 reps of each exercise and then start over. Play your favourite song and do this quick abs workout for the entire song length.
1. Double leg lift
Starting position: both hands behind the neck, toes up, heels together, legs straight, lifting up your shoulders, abs tight. let your legs down very slowly and then raise them up again. Beginners can place their hands underneeth the butt, relax the head and bring the legs not so low and then bring them back up. Exhale – lift, inhale – down. Make sure your lower back is pressed against the mat.
2. Criss cross
This part of the quick abs workout is suitable for everyone, we all can do this: opposite shoulder to opposite knee and alternate. Make sure you extend the leg, your shoulders are off the mat and your upper body twists.
Your abs should feel like stone now because of this killer combination: criss cross + double leg lift. Only 3 minutes of this quick abs workout and your abdominal muscles are stretching and toning as if you were running on the treadmill for an entire hour.
If you feel like you want to listen another song 🙂 feel free to repeat this workout after a 30 seconds rest break. Working out 3 times a day for 4 days a week will give you amazing results: your own six pack abs. Let me know in the comments below if you made the whole way through for at least one song.
