8 Minute Tabata Ab Workout

Hello lovelies, 
Today I want to share an abs home workout with you that burns!You can do this one anywhere and you won’t need any equipment except the timer on your phone. The way this workout works is that it’s a Tabata HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) workout. This means you will work for 20sec then take a 10sec break and then start working again for 20sec etc. The workout consists of 4 different abs exercises each of which you will do for 4 intervals of 20sec on and 10sec off (total of 2min). Yes that means this whole workout is only 8 minutes long!!
Little tip for the timing of this, just start your stopwatch on your phone and have the phone on the ground (for exercise 1 & 2) or in your hand (for exercise 3 & 4) so you can see the time at all time, as there are no breaks between the 4 exercises other than the 10sec. 

First up are Plank-Ups


Start in a plank position on your elbows and then move up on to your hands. Then move back down to your elbows and repeat the exercise for 20sec, then take a 10sec break. Repeat 4 times.

Next are Mountain Climbers
Start in a plank position on your hands this time and pull your knee in towards your chest. Make sure not to lift your butt. Switch legs and do this for 20sec, then take a 10sec break. Repeat 4 times.

Next are Leg Raises

Lie on your back with your arms stretch above your head and your legs stretch out but neither should be touching the ground. Then pull your legs and arms into your body center and push them back out. Repeat this exercise for 20sec, then take a 10sec break. Repeat 4 times.

Last but not least are Crunches.

Crunch the top of your abs as you are trying to reach up with your hands. Do this exercise for 20sec, then take a 10sec break. Repeat 4 times.

You’re done!! Do you feel the burn?
Let me know what you think of this ab workout!
