Blast Your Abs in 4 Minutes With This Trainer's Strengthening Plank Workout
If there was a connection between fitness and astrology, specifically birth charts, my rising sign would be strength training, my moon sign would be abs, and my sun sign would be recovery devices. Until someone can verify my fitness birth chart, I'm going to stick to what I know, which are ab-strengthening workouts. They're arguably one of my favourite things to do, and I've got a quick and simple ab workout for all levels that you don't need any equipment to do.
This four-move workout highlights the plank (one of the best ab exercises, in my opinion), and will work your obliques, deep core muscles, and the tiny muscles in your back that also happen to be a part of your core. This workout is short, but I promise you, it's going to feel like you did 15 minutes of nonstop ab work. Check it out ahead.
