10 Best Home Abs Workout For A Strong AF Stomach

This 10-move abs workout. Crank it out two or three times a week and you’ll be well on your way to more toned abs without having to leave home.

All you need at home is enough space for a yoga mat to make the magic happen. Nope, you don’t need a shred of equipment for a scorcher of a home abs workout.

Time: 20 minutes

Equipment: mat

Good for: abs, core

Instructions: Complete the indicated number of reps for each move below (demo-d by certified trainer Kara Liotta). From there, immediately continue to the next exercise without resting until you’ve finished all of them. Then, rest for one minute and repeat all 10 moves a second time. (If you’re feeling up to it, go for a third!)

1. Bicycle Crunch

Bicycle Crunch

How to: Lie on back with hands behind head. Lift shoulder blades off mat, raise legs so knees are bent at 90 degrees, and gaze at thighs, keeping neck relaxed. This is your starting position. Engage abs and rotate right elbow toward left knee while extending right leg to straight, lowering it as close to the floor as possible without resting it on mat. Return to start and repeat on the other side. That’s one rep. Complete 10 reps. Continue to the next move.

2. Side Hip Bridge

That’s one rep. Complete 10 reps on right side, then flip to left side and complete 10 reps on that side. Continue to the next move.

3. Reverse Crunch Abs Workout

How to: Start lying on back with hands by sides and legs lifted off the ground at a 45-degree angle, toes pointed. Push down into arms and pull knees into chest until hips lift off mat, keeping core engaged. Slowly return to start. That’s one rep. Complete 10 reps. Continue to the next move.

4. Air Chop Abs Workout

Engage arm muscles and, with control, swing arms forward and down, stopping when they reach chest level. Return slowly to start. That’s one rep. Complete 10 reps. Continue to the next move.

5. Shoulder Tap

How to: Start in a plank position. Keeping hips level, touch left shoulder with right hand, then place palm back on the floor. Repeat on the other side. That’s one rep. Complete 10 reps. Continue to the next move.

6. Extended Arm Plank Bird Dog

How to: Start in a plank position. Engage core and lift left arm and right leg off the mat at the same time, keeping hips as level as possible. Slowly return to start. Repeat on the opposite side. That’s one rep. Complete 10 reps. Continue to the next move.

7. Extended Arm Plank To T-Raise

Keep toes in place but lower heels down to the right until they reach the mat while rotating torso to face left side of mat and lifting left arm into the air in line with shoulder. Return to start and repeat on the other side. That’s one rep. Complete 10 reps. Continue to the next move.

8. Plank To Toe Touch

Slowly return to start. Repeat on the opposite side. That’s one rep. Complete 10 reps. Continue to the next move.

9. Seated Rotation

Keep lower body still while rotating upper body to left side until left elbow is just off mat. Return to start. Gaze follows hands as you move. That’s one rep. Complete 10 reps. Continue to the next move.

10. Hollow Hold Abs Workout

Start lying on back with arms and legs extended and on the floor. Raise arms and legs, leaving just bra line and lower back on mat so body looks like a banana. Hold the position for 30 seconds. Rest for one minute then repeat entire circuit from the top until you’ve done two or three rounds.
