This Abs Workout Can be Done Anywhere- Home, Work, Hotel!

Repeat this workout 2-3 times, and challenge yourself each time, to have the best abs workout!

Scissor Kicks

This is one of the best abs workouts you can do, even though it may take a little bit to feel the burn. Lie on your back with both legs straight, and arms pressing against the side of your body, palms down. Make sure your abs are engaged, and you are pushing your lower back into the ground.

Next, lift both your legs up, keeping them straight, at the same time. Remember to keep your core engaged, and separate your legs. Lower your left leg to be about an inch above the ground, while raising your right leg so it’s at about a 45 degree angle, and then alternate them, thus making “scissor” motions.

Do 30 this for 30 seconds quickly, or you can go very slowly, and do it until you have done 30 raises on each leg.

Traditional Crunches

The traditional crunch has stuck around as an abs workout for a reason!

Lie on your back with your elbows bent and hands resting gently – not fully supporting – your head. Have your knees bent with  your feet flat on the floor, and approximately hip-width apart.

Engage your core, and pull your abs inward, while curling your upper body (neck, shoulders, head) off of the floor completely, hold for a moment, and then lower yourself back down.

Do 30 crunches.

Lying Leg Raises

Lie flat on your back, with your arms on either side of you and your palms face down, pressing against the ground, slightly below your buttocks. You’ll use these for support.

Engage your core, and lift your legs (keeping them straight) off the ground about 2 inches to start. When you are ready, keep your legs together, and lift them up, bending from the hips, as high as you can. Essentially try to bring your knees to your shoulders, keeping your legs straight.

Repeat this 30 times.

Bicycle Crunches

You will feel the burn with this abs workout! Lie on the floor on your back with your hands behind your head (once again, not supporting your head).

Bend your knees and bring them up towards your chest, while simultaneously lifting your shoulders off the ground.

Slowly, twist your torso to bring your right shoulder towards your left knee, before returning to the starting position in a crunch position. Then, twist your torso again to move your left shoulder towards your right knee.

Speed this up for a great burn, and do 30 on each side.


Firstly, get yourself in a push up position. Then lower yourself so you are resting on your elbows, hands clasped together infront of you, with your body weight positioned with your shoulders over your elbows.

Your feet should be holding your lower body weight up, so from your shoulders to your ankles, your body forms a straight line.

Make sure that your core is engaged by tucking in your stomach as much as you can (don’t suck in, use your muscles).

Hold this for 60 seconds.

Side Planks

Lie on your side with your elbow placed directly inline with your shoulder. Lay your hand flat on the ground, and slowly lift your hip up so that your body is in a straight, diagonal line, with your core engaged.

You can modify this by keeping your knees bent for support if need be.

Hold this for 60 seconds, and then switch sides.
