For when you don’t have a lot of time
Sometimes you can take it easy in the gym and get through your workout without having to hurry, but at other times you have to work with a tight schedule. The busy bees among us will recognise the scenario: a quick workout between two obligations. So straight to the gym when you’re done working and actually having to leave again in an hour because you agreed to meet up with your friend in the evening. Busy, busy, busy! When your time is limited, you want to get the most out of it. Do you have a spare minute? You can do these abs exercises within 60 seconds. Do you have a little more time? Try combining a few of these. As a bonus, you can do them at home as well.
5 quick exercises for abs of steel.
1. High plank
It’s a well-known exercise for many people, but that doesn’t make it any less effective! A high plank makes you use every muscle in your body, which makes it a must-do in your workout! Start in a push-up position with your hands positioned under your shoulders. Make sure that your body forms a straight line from your head to your heels. Tense your abs and glutes, and hold that position. Set a timer for 60 seconds and you’re done!
2. Dead bug
This exercise is perfect for your inner abs or core. Lie down on your back with your arms and leg stretched out towards the ceiling. Position your leg in a 90-degree angle, tense your abs, and keep your lower back on the ground while you right arm and left leg move towards the floor simultaneously. Get your arms and legs up again and switch sides. Keep it up for one minute and say hello to your six pack.
