Description

This anytime-anywhere quick ab blast make your core burn. This HIIT workout is made for your six-pack.

HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) is one of the most popular and most effective training methods. Not only does it burn fat; it also challenges your muscles.

Complete all 5 exercises one after the other for 30 seconds each, with a 30-second break in between. Then you can rest for up to 2 minutes. Repeat the full set of exercises 3-4 times. If the plank on your knees is too easy, you can do a plank with your elbows or hands instead.

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.
