Short on time but have big ab goals? You can fit this quick session into any part of your day, and you don’t even need equipment. Try these three moves for one minute each to work the lower abs and that six-pack area; you’ll be burning up, toning, and even giving your booty some love, too.
-Lay on your back, and place your hands on the floor for stability as you bend one leg and lift the other leg off the ground.
-Pressing your heel into the floor, lift your pelvis up, keeping your body in a stiff bridge position.
-Slowly lower your body to the floor and repeat for 30 seconds on each side
-Stand with your feet hip-width apart and place your hands on your hips (or at the back of your head) with your elbows opened wide.
-Pull your abs to your spine and keep your back neutral while pressing your butt backward, hinging at the hips, until your back is almost parallel to the floor.
-Keep a slight bend in your knees as you hinge forward.
-Return to standing, squeezing your glutes when you are upright to reset. This completes one rep.
-Repeat as many times as you can for 60 seconds.
Arm Circle Planks
-In a plank position, reach your left arm back and then circle it overhead, bringing your palm back to the floor; repeat on the other side. This counts as one rep.
-Repeat for one minute, keeping the core stable and the belly button pulled up toward the spine.
-The wider your feet are, the more stable you will be. Do not let your pelvis drift toward the ceiling.
