Tabata Core Workout

By Nadia Marshall

Everyone wants toned abs! Get thoseDo each exercise for 20 seconds, followed by 10 seconds of rest, then repeat the set 8 times.

  • Bicycle Crunches- Bring opposite elbow to opposite knee. Keep your head up, if you can. For an extra challenge, stay up on your glutes.
  • Double Crunches- Extend arms and legs as you lay on the ground. Come up and bring your elbows to meet your knees. Come back to starting position without touching the ground, if you can. If needed, return to original starting position and continue.
  • V-ups- Extend your arms and legs as you lay on the ground. Come up and bring your arms to your feet in a “V” shape. Come back down to starting position and repeat. Try to do as many as you can.
  • Scissor Kicks- Alternate your feet over and under with your legs straight out. Try to keep your head up and your chin tucked into your chest.

If needed, rest 1 minute in between each round. If you would like a challenge, complete the whole workout without 1 minute rest in between workouts.
