Hey friends, I’m teaming up today with HYLETE to bring you a quick at home ab workout and a fitness clothing giveaway!

When I was coming up with an idea for a workout to share for this post, I realized that home workouts are (and have been) a consistent need in the fitness community.

Whether you’re stuck at home from quarantines or restrictions, or you just don’t have time to go to the gym, home workouts are always a great option to stay in shape where you’re at.

I personally love the gym, but the gym isn’t for everyone and right now with coronavirus restrictions it’s not even an option for some people.

So we’re turning lemons into lemonade! ?

This at home ab workout targets all areas of your core, not just the front of your abs (the rectus abdominis). You can do this workout on it’s own or add it to your regular workout for something different.

Read on for the complete workout details and enter the giveaway at the end of the post!

Quick At Home Ab Workout

Start this workout with a 5-10 minute warm up, or add this to the end of your regular workout. Finish this up with a cool down, foam rolling, and stretching.

We have this workout written to be performed as a circuit for 2 sets, but if you want to make this even more challenging, you can do 3 sets!

When you do this workout as a circuit, perform this with little to no rest between exercises, then rest 1-2 minutes at the end of the circuit before repeating again.

Below are the explanations and details for the exercises in this workout. The links go to our YouTube videos with how to do these exercises! The only exercise without a video is the reverse crunch.

Plank knee to elbow

You can do this exercise on your elbows or on your hands, whichever is more comfortable for you. Or you can alternate hands and elbows each set to give your wrists a break.

plank + knee to elbow ab exercise

You can watch our plank + knee to elbow video on YouTube demonstrating this exercise with proper form tips (I have these labeled as slow mountain climbers in my video but the exercise is the same).

Side plank + hip dip

The side plank with a dip is one of my favorite oblique exercises! You can do this one move either on your hand or on your elbow, and you can add some cushion under your wrist or elbow as well.

side plank exercise

Make sure to keep your wrist or elbow directly under your shoulder to protect your shoulder joint.

If you’d like to keep this move simple, you can just opt for a regular side plank and hold for 20-30 seconds on each side.

Russian Twist

The Russian Twist exercise is a great one for working both your rectus abdominis (front of your abs) and your obliques (your sides).

If you’re new to this abdominal exercise, start without weight to get your form correct first then add weight later.

russian twist exercise with dumbbell

Keep your chest lifted (don’t round your shoulders) and twist only as far as you’re comfortable. If you’re a beginner at exercising, you can also do this exercise with your feet on the ground rather than lifted.

Superman

The superman exercise is one of my favorites for strengthening the muscles in your back and it’s so simple and can be done with no equipment.

superman exercise for low back

Skip or modify this exercise if you have back problems or have had back surgery. Remember to always check with your doctor before beginning a new exercise program!

If you’d like to make this a bit more challenging and add more shoulder and lat strengthening, you can do a superman lat pull/band pull instead.

Mountain climbers

Mountain climbers are a great way to get your heart rate up and work your ab muscles at the same time.

You can make this exercise a little more difficult by adding a cross-body movement with your knee or turning these into mountain skaters!

Just make sure to keep your hands under your shoulders and don’t let your low back sag down.

Reverse crunch

The reverse crunch exercise is a great way to vary your crunches if you’re tried to regular ones.

For this exercise, keep in mind that your neck should be relaxed for during this exercise. Don’t strain your neck!
