The 15-minute Ab Workout That WORKS
Sculpt a six-pack with this comprehensive core workout. All you need is 15 minutes and a few square feet of floor.
This workout strengthens your core and gets your abs into shape.
This plan has 4 exercises for you. Each exercise consists of 3 sets of 10-15 repetitions or 30 seconds of holding. Take a break of up to 90 seconds after each set. Do all sets of an exercise before you move on to the next exercise (station training). If the knee plank is too easy, you can switch it out for an elbow plank.
Always make sure that your exercise is clean and controlled and keep your body under tension.
Warm up well before you start training! Have fun with our workout.

This foodspring video shows you how to do knee planks correctly. Knee planks are a great way to start with the plank for beginners who don’t yet have enough core strength for the classic version.Start in the same starting position as a plank, but leave your knees on the floor. Even though you’ve got your knees supporting you, stick to the same guidelines: Your elbows should be under your shoulders, your abs should be tight, and your glutes should keep tension to support your weight.
