Light up your metabolism and hit your core from every angle with this hard-core combination of fat-burning and ab-sculpting bodyweight movements. Use it as a finisher, or as a standalone session. Let get shredding.
As countless Instagram #fitspo accounts allude, abs are less about working out and more about the kitchen. They’re not wrong, but building a stronger core and chiselled abs lets you go harder in any workout without folding like origami. A new HD six-pack is simply a bonus.
With that in mind, here’s how to nail this workout. On a running clock, go flat out for 60 seconds in each exercise, resting for 60 seconds in the third minute. Repeat this for five rounds for a total of 15 ab-skewering minutes.
01) V-Up into Burpee 6o seconds for 5 rounds
A proper hard-core combo. Lying on the floor, lift your torso and legs and reach for your toes in one move (A). Lower your legs and rock into a seated position. Shift your weight onto your arms and kick your legs into a press-up position. Shift your legs forward and jump (B). Lie back down, then go again.
02) Forward-Leaning Rest: 6o seconds for 5 rounds
Assume a high plank position, shifting your weight slightly forward. Focus on maintaining
a rigid structure from your ankles to your shoulders, and don’t allow your hips to sag or rise. Hold for 60 seconds, then take a full minute’s rest before returning to the V-up into burpee.
