All 5-Minute Ab Workouts For Busy Mornings

5-Minute Ab Workouts

Dedicate a handful of minutes a day to getting stronger and more defined abs. Perform each of the following exercises for one minute each. If you have 10 or 15 to spare for your future six-pack, then repeat this sequence two or three times.

Number 1: Mountain Climbers

Start in a traditional push-up starting position — shoulders over hands and weight on just your toes.

Bring your right foot forward, bending the knee and putting weight on the ball of your foot.

Switch legs, bringing the left knee forward while moving the right leg back. It feels a little like running in place in a plank position.

For an advanced variation to work your abs more, keep the ball of your foot off the floor as you bring the knee in toward your chest.

Quickly move through this exercise for as long as possible without taking a break — at least 30 seconds! Take a quick breather if need be, but pick up again until one minute is up.
