10 Min AB WORKOUT with No Equipment (NOT abs in ten minutes)

10 minute ab workout to follow along!
Abs in ten minutes? 6 minute abs workout to get abs in 14 days? You can’t put a time scale on results. We are all different. And such minimal time period isn’t realistic.

We all have abdominal muscles. If a workout is relating to visible abs in 10 minutes, even if you do it everyday for a year you very likely will not gain any visibility of ab muscles. Also training abs too much is not good either…muscles need rest so even training abs everyday for 2 weeks will not bring the progress you maybe are promised, although you will absolutely gain more strength, endurance and stability in those muscles!

If you combine ab specific routines alongside your cardio/strength training or whatever is your preference and are consuming a nutritional intake that will help you in your training and goals you will overtime feel and see progress. Consistency, intensity, correct form, patience and control of every movement will contribute to overall improvements in fitness levels and training.

Why train your abdominal muscles?

The abs are only part of the core. The core is the centre of gravity for every movement.

A strong core has many benefits including stability for the body, protects our spine and helps improve performance. Every time you move, lift, plank, walk, run, your core provides that stable, strong foundation.

Strengthening, targeting and learning to brace the core will help you train more safe, train better, improve posture, balance and provide a strong girdle to connect upper and lower body.

Activating and strengthening the rectus abdominis, internal & external obliques and the TVA (transversus abdominis) all contribute to a strong and stable core.

To brace the core, I always suggest simply think about if you are about to be hit with impact on the torso such as a punch. You would automatically brace your core!

The calories burned in performing an ab specific routine will not reduce fat from that particular area. The same applies when doing inner thigh strengthening movements for example… this will not reduce fat in this area specifically as the body takes energy as a whole from the body, not one specific area. Again, it will help strengthen those muscles!

You will be using the abs and core as a whole throughout strength training and full body movements also.

I love an ab/core specific routine as it helps to strengthen the abdominal muscles, teaches me to activate and engage the TVA (deepest abdominal muscles) which in turn will help to improve posture and will help tighten the torso.

This workout is a great addition post a main workout or alone on those active rest days.

Each movement is similar to the previous and are sorted into a smooth transitional order!

All you will need is a mat for this ab strengthening routine!

The timer will be on for 45 seconds of work with no specific rest however ensure you don’t rush into the next exercise… take a moment to make sure you are comfortable and ready to proceed!

Pause at any point during the workout and simply resume when you feel ready!

As with any leg lowering, it is important that you don’t lower beyond the point where your lower back is on the mat.

Perform with bending at knees, place hands under hips or don’t lower as low if you lower back is rising up. Think about pressing the lower back into the mat!
