Home | Single Workout | Beginner: 10 exercises

Ready to challenge your core and elevate your fitness level in just 10 minutes? This Interval Training (HIIT) routine is designed to target your abs with high-intensity exercises that require no equipment. With quick bursts of work followed by short rests, you’ll feel the burn and see results faster. Let's dive into each exercise and make every second count!

Start with a brief 10-second preparation period to get into position and mentally prepare. Each exercise will be done for 40 seconds with a 20-second rest in between. Here's the breakdown:

**1. 3/4 Sit-up**: Engage your upper and mid-abs by coming up three-quarters of the way from the floor. Maintain a steady pace to build endurance.

**2. Elbow to Knee Crunches**: Perform alternate crunches where you bring your elbow to the opposite knee, ensuring a full twist to engage your oblique muscles effectively.

**3. Floor Crunches**: Simple yet effective, these crunches focus on the entire abdominal region. Lie flat on your back and lift your upper body towards your knees.

**4. Alternate Heel Touches**: Lie on your back with knees bent, lifting your shoulder blades off the floor. Reach your hands towards your heels alternately to work the obliques.

**5. Knee Touch Crunch**: Similar to regular crunches but with a focus on touching your knees, this move adds an extra contraction to the upper abs.

**6. Cocoons**: Pull your knees to your chest and wrap your arms around them. Extend your body fully then return, focusing on maintaining tension in the abs.

**7. Bicycle Crunch**: Lie flat and perform pedaling movements with your legs while alternately bringing your elbows to your knees. This exercise not only targets the abs but also improves coordination.

**8. Opposite Crunch**: Effective for the obliques, alternate lifting and twisting your upper body to bring your elbow towards the opposite knee.

**9. Alternate Leg Raises**: Lie flat on your back and raise each leg alternately. This movement primarily targets the lower abs and helps improve flexibility.

**10. 90 Degree Heel Touch**: Lift your legs to a 90-degree angle and reach your hands towards your heels, providing an intense ab workout.

After finishing all exercises, take a brief 10-second recovery period to cool down. This HIIT routine is intense but highly effective for those looking to strengthen their core without any equipment. Remember to maintain proper form to avoid injuries and maximize results. Happy training!
