The 5-Minute Home Ab Workout

Lying Leg Thrusts – 50 Seconds

This exercise is great for activating your lower ab muscles. It may be a bit challenging if you’re a beginner but you can make it easier by keeping your knees bent.

How to perform

Lie on your back on a comfortable surface and then place your hands on the side.

Keep your feet together and then lift them up until they’re perpendicular to the floor.

Slowly raise your hips off the floor as high as you can and then lower them.

Keep repeating this movement. Keep your legs straight throughout.

Up and Down Criss Cross – 50 Seconds

This exercise also tones your lower belly. Perform it slowly for maximum ab activation.

How to perform

Lie on your back and place your hands under your butt.

Lift your head off the floor and then lift both legs off the floor.

Bring one leg on top of each other while you lift them.

Once your feet are about 70 degrees off the floor start lowering them and continue doing the criss-cross movement.

Russian Twists – 50 Seconds

Russian twists are great because they activate the rectus abdominis and oblique muscles. Feel free to keep your feet on the floor if the exercise is too challenging.

How to perform

Sit on the floor and slightly lean backward.

Keep your knees bent at 90 degrees and then lift them off the floor.

Bring your hands together and then start twisting your torso from left to right.

Remember to keep your back straight while doing this exercise.

Front Arm Plank – 50 Seconds

Many of us are familiar with this exercise. It’s great for toning ab muscles and activating hip flexors.

How to perform

Get in the push-up position and then rest your forearms on the floor.

Keep your hips, torso, and legs aligned in a straight line.

Hold this position for 50 seconds.

Note that tightening your abs and butt muscles helps prevent your hips from sinking.

Mountain Climbers – 50 Seconds

Mountain climbers are a full body exercise that activates your abs, arms, shoulders, and legs.

How to perform

Start in the push-up position and keep your body aligned in a straight line.

Slowly pull one knee in as close to your chest and possible and then return it to starting position.

Quickly pull in the opposite knee and keep alternating your legs after each rep.

You may want to combine this workout with the spec force routine if you want to get abs in as little as 6 weeks.
