There’s really something to be said about the power of short workouts, especially ones that are as tough as this! You would think that five minutes of work would feel easy, but you would be wrong, my friend – I was a lot sweatier at the end of this one than I thought I would be!
I try not to do the same ol’ boring crunches every time I’m training my abs, because… well, because crunches are boring, but also because there are so many other great exercises that will get the work done even better. I particularly like to target my obliques as well as my abs, to make the whole stomach and core area much stronger.
This workout is really straightforward – five exercises in five minutes. Check out the video below if you’d like to follow along in real time or have questions about the exercises!
