  • Category Fitness


Fitness Blender's 10 Minute Abs Routine targets the entire abdominal panel, and obliques. The abdominal and obliques exercises in the home routine below are combined with cardio intervals to keep your heart rate up and help burn the most fat.

This can easily be a beginner abs workout routine or a very advanced abs workout; you can adapt each of the exercises to your own fitness level by choosing the level of difficulty that best suits you. All that you need for this routine is a thick mat.

Program Structure:
Do each of the exercises for 60 seconds. Don’t worry if you can’t do each component for a full minute; stop briefly when you need to but return to the move as soon as possible to finish out the full minute.

If you do the easiest versions of these exercises, this is not overly challenging and is perfect for beginners. For a more intense challenge, try the hardest version of all of the abs exercises and home cardio workout moves in order to increase both the demand on your core and your caloric burn.

It is a good idea to combine any abdominal routine with a complimentary back strengthening routine. And remember; abs are made in the kitchen. You've got to eat clean and work to reach a healthy bodyweight before you'll ever see any of your hard work show up in the form of ab muscles.
