Flat Abs in 10!


Want flat abs?

Put down the chips!

Grab a water bottle!

Grab a towel because it’s time to sweat!! This workout is only 10 minutes long and I’ve put together some of the best moves for toning and heart pumping. These are moves I do myself when I’m feeling bloated and puffy. I promise it’s like, an instant detox-er!

To achieve a tight and toned abdomen, you need to pair three principles:


  1. Cardio
  2. Strength training(targeting abs)
  3. Clean eating

You can do all the ab-toning exercises you like, but it’s not going to show without a clean diet! Easier said than done, but certainly achievable! Keep your eye on the goal.

  • 1 minute high knees – jog on the spot with high knees
  • 30 seconds burpees* – jump up, jump out into plank, jump your feet back to your hands in a crouching position, then jump up again and repeat.
  • 1 minute crunches – lie on your back with bent knees. Use your abdomen to crunch your upper body up.
  • 30 seconds burpees – see above
  • 1 minute double leg lifts – lie on your back and bring both legs up and down. The lower you go, the harder it gets. I say go low!!
  • 1 minute jump rope** -self explanatory
  • 1 minute bicycle crunch – lie on your back and bring hands clasped behind your head. Bring one knee in to touch the opposite elbow (so twist) while extending the other leg out. Switch.
  • 1 minute turtle touches – lie on your back with bent knees, feet touching the ground. Try touching your heels by shifting left and right.
  • 1 minute plank – on your forearms or your hands, whichever you chose! To make it harder, try pulling your toes towards your hands and your hands towards your toes. It’ll be an isometric exercise, so don’t physically move; just contract.
  • 1 minute toe touches – lie on your back with both legs straight up to the sky. Clasp both hands and reach for your toes.
  • 1 minute roll ups – lie on your back and flex or point your feet. Raise your hands over your head and peel your back off the mat, like a sticker.
*Go as hard as you can the shorter the time frame!
**Micmic skipping motions with hands if you don’t have a rope!

6 moves that’s great for sleep, recovery, or starting your day.

If you have time, I encourage you to stretch it out with my yoga with a pillow: a cushioned practice sequence! It’s really good first thing in the morning and last thing at night.


So as you cool down, tell me:
How hard was that circuit on a scale of 1 to 10?

  • Those are some of my favorite ab exercises. I also think diet is really important in ab development. Thanks for stopping by my site and I am glad I discovered yours as well.

  • Those are great moves for strong and defined abs, indeed! I always swear by high knees too. They seriously make my calves, lower abs, and heart burn like crazy. 😀

  • I usually do Jillian Michaels 6 pack in 6 weeks video! It has the many of the moves as the ones in your list there. I love it! 🙂 It took me a long time to realize the importance of diet in weight loss. I always thought that working out will do the trick but my own body told me that that wasn’t the case. Now, I’m really trying to be more mindful of what I eat. First, to stay healthy. Second, to maintain a healthy weight 🙂

    • Ive never done Jillian micheals workouts, but I can imagine she’s really tough loving ya! Some people are lucky and don’t treat nutrition very seriously and still gave a nive body, but even so, health through diet is important! 🙂

  • Heather @ Divas Run for Bling

    This is a great workout. My core is by far my the weakest part of my body. I have been adding core exercises after all my runs. I also think that eating a proper diet is essential in trying to get the abs I want. #wowlinkup

    • I love adding resistance workouts after cardio. After lubricating my joints and such, it just feels natural to add some strength work.

  • Amanda H

    Great workout! Love those short, intense, and effective routines. #wowlinkup

    Thank you for this! I will have to give this a try, I LOVE short, intense workouts! #wowlinkup
