10 minutes ab workout with effective exercises for a flat stomach

Women's Best Fitness Team

Looking for a fast way to get a six-pack? Try this super-quick and effective 10-minute ab workout for women and get a toned stomach and stronger core.

Whether you want to do your ab workout routine in the morning, before work, in the evening or while watching TV – everyone can spare 10 minutes a day for a flat belly. It sounds too good to be true, but there’s no more time needed to work your way to a six-pack. 

Contrary to popular belief, crunching is not the most effective ab exercise. Crunches only work the muscles on the front and sides of your abdomen, but it’s important to target all the muscles of the core to get more defined abs. This ab workout which we prepared for you is so effective because it’s about quality, not quantity. Get ready to warm up the body and feel your midsection burn with our ab workout routine!

10 Minutes ab workout for women

Do the exercises as the sets with 12 reps. For example, you’ll do one set of snap jumps, rest, do a second set, rest, do the third set. Then, move on to the next exercise. Do this flat stomach workout four times a week. Also, remember – eating clean is crucial for making your abs visible since they only come out if you have relatively low body fat. Check out our other article what are the common reasons why your abs can’t pop! Healthy eating and drinking water are a very important part of it! Abs are made in the gym but revealed in the kitchen.
