Fitness Blender 15 Minute Abs Workout - At Home Core Training without Equipment

We make our workouts all different lengths and configurations so you can find exactly what you are looking for, whether it is a standalone workout or a mix and match combination of multiple different workouts. This 16 minute abs routine fit perfectly into the latter. With no warm up or cool down, it allows you to use it as purely a core workout by adding one of our warm ups and cool downs (or your own) or you can easily add it into a natural break in one of our hundreds of full length workout videos to get just a little more core work and/or calorie burn.

Note: If you want all of your workouts laid out for you from start to finish; warm up to smart workout, to cool down and stretch, check out our home workout programs.

At Fitness Blender we know that everyone wants and needs something a little different for their fitness goals so that is why we try to offer so many different types of workout styles and highly suggest that you modify each workout to best fit your own needs. In fact that is why we call ourselves Fitness Blender, because we believe that the best way to be truly fit is to “blend” different styles of training together to cover the holes in one training style with the strengths in another. 

In this 16 minute routine, we have left off the warm up and the cool down so you can customize it as you want. We start straight into the the workout so if you are doing this as a solo workout be sure to get a warm up in on your own. The core workout video is split into two separate sections each with 8 different exercises to target the entire core area, from the base of your rib cage to the crest of your hips. Each exercise is only done for one set of 45 seconds and then you have 15 seconds to get in position for the next exercise. So, you can use this routine as is and only do one set (recommended if you are adding to another routine) or you can go through this routine twice (with a cumulative two sets per exercise) to get a really comprehensive core workout. Also remember that there are different difficulty versions for each exercise so adapt it to your needs. If you want to focus on endurance, move a bit more quickly so you can get in more repetitions but use an easier version of the movement, if you want to build strength then move slowly, and use the hardest version you can control, even if that means incorporating light dumbbells into each move.
