Interested in a fast way to strengthen and tone your tummy without having to sacrifice too much time from your day?
Luckily you can target and tone in just 14 minutes, getting you closer to your dream abs! The key to toned abs is working every area of your mid-section, so ditch those boring crunches and spice it up with a variety of different ab workouts!
Planking gives you a full frontal body workout without any machinery or tiring motion. Not only can planks strengthen your core and midsection but it also helps strengthen your upper and lower body. The key to getting the most out of planking is to execute the proper form. Start by positioning your body close to the floor, resting on the balls of your feet, and your forearms. Make sure to keep your midsection straight and parallel to the floor. Try to hold your plank for 2 minutes. Do this twice! If you have to drop to your knees, that's ok, just make sure to push yourself to get back into the plank before the two minutes is up!
Toe Taps are another great way to tighten up your lower stomach, while still working your entire mid-section. Start by laying down with your back resting on the floor, and your arms up over your head. Raise both your legs up, and bring your arms up to touch your feet or ankles (refer to the photo above). Try doing this move for 15 reps, two times.
Push ups aren't only great for toning your arms, but they also focus on your core! If you're not quite ready to do push-ups on the balls of your feet, it's okay! Push ups are also effective when you do them on your knees, but remember to tighten your abs. Try doing 15 pushups, two times (or 30 total).
