Workout Your Abs — Without Crunches!

Workout Your Abs — Without Crunches!
Workout For Abs With No Crunches

I often get questions asking for workouts that focus on the abdominals.

If you are doing a workout that targets a specific part of your body, you need to work all of the muscles in that area — so don’t get into the mindset that training your core by doing crunches will automatically result in abdominal definition. The key to a STRONG core is to use a range of exercises that target all of the abdominal muscles, including your obliques and deeper abdominal muscles.

Try this fast no-crunches workout for your core

This workout uses some of the exercises in my High Intensity Zero Equipment program. 

Because it requires no equipment, it’s a workout you can do anywhere, at any time. 

It’s also a quick workout you can do in less than 10 minutes, so it’s a great option if you are having a busy day — the aim is to do each of the eight exercises for 30 seconds, and complete 2 laps. 

Don’t forget your warm-up, and then get ready to work your abs — no crunches required!

My training programs work every part of your body

Workouts with ab exercises should only make up one part of your training routine — all my programs have workouts that target muscle groups across your WHOLE body, which is the best way to get results. 

If you want a program that is really flexible, High Intensity Zero Equipment with Kayla has shorter Express workouts, giving you more options to fit your training routine in with your lifestyle.

If you want to begin your fitness journey, you can find my programs in the Sweat app — and start working out today!
