8 Minute Home Ab Workout (GUARANTEED ABS!)

8 Minute Home Ab Workout (GUARANTEED ABS!)

If you have 8 minutes, you have plenty of time to follow along with this brutal 8 minute home ab workout that requires nothing more than a single pair of dumbbells and some room on the floor. Many times, when people are doing their ab workouts at home they forget to incorporate some of the amazing ab exercises and principles that makes their gym workouts most effective. In the case of ab workouts, they forget to include the weight.

Weighted ab exercises are one of the best options for developing the strength of your core and the look of your abs, especially when you are short on time. You are best advised to not simply continue to repeat exercises for super high rep counts when you have the capacity to load the exercise up with some dumbbells and create more overload on the rectus and obliques in the process.

Remember, adaptation to physical stress is how muscles get developed to be stronger and more resilient. You want a strong core for more than just aesthetic reasons. Having strong abs and a rigid core are important for spinal stability and maintaining proper form when you attempt your heavier compound lifts in your main workouts. There are no shortages to the benefits you can derive from getting stronger abs, and this follow along workout will help you to do just that.

So here’s what you do:

Set an interval timer or stopwatch for 8 minutes. Perform the first three ab exercises for 1 minute each. Try and continue repping out for the entire minute, however if needed, you may stop and rest briefly with the idea being that you want to get back to the exercise as quickly as you can. The weight used is going to be the way that you will scale this workout depending on if you are more of a beginner than an advanced ab trainee.

The first exercise up is called the dumbbell wiper. This ab exercise is designed to hit the lower abs due to the bottom up initiation of the movement. The idea is to simultaneously curl the pelvis up off the ground while twisting it. The twist will engage the obliques through bottom up rotation and help you to hit both of these muscle groups in one shot. Target the right dumbbell with your knees and then the left dumbbell by twisting your knees the opposite way. Perform this amazing lower ab exercise for 1 minute without stopping if possible.

After a brief 3 second rest to simply transition to the next exercise, you are going to hold the dumbbells as if you are going to bench press them off the floor. From here, you perform an exercise called the dumbbell power-up. This move will more effectively target the mid and upper rectus abdominis and allows you to utilize more power and strength than the first exercise did. Perform this for 1 minute as well, resting only if needed and even then making sure to keep the rest period brief.

After another brief 3 second rest, move onto the next exercise called the seated dumbbell twist. This exercise is a great oblique movement. This forces the obliques to control the momentum gained by the twisting dumbbells in one direction or the other. The further out to the sides that you hold the dumbbells the longer the moment arm and the more work your abs and obliques will have to do to control the weights. Try to do this for 1 minute as well.

Finally, it’s time to challenge your core through a postural exercise that is sure to crush you at this stage of the game. The idea here is to simply press the weights up overhead and sit as tall as you possibly can. Maintain that extended position through the lumbar spine and don’t collapse down onto your ribcage. See if you can last the entire 30 seconds without breaking posture. This is challenging but you can do it.

Rest for the remaining 30 seconds and you will have completed your first of two rounds through this brutal 8 minute home ab workout routine.

If you are ready for it, attempt to complete one more round of this torture to really put that core of yours to work. Here is how it looks like all laid out:

Dumbbell Wipers x 1 minute
Dumbbell Power-Ups x 1 minute
Seated DB Twists x 1 minute
Seated DB Overhead Hold x 30 seconds
Rest 30 seconds and repeat for one more round if able.

If you are looking for a complete core training program that takes your entire core (including your lower abs, upper rectus, obliques, serratus and lower back) for a 12 week journey to a ripped and powerful midsection, be sure to check out the Core4 Abs program at athleanx.com. Train your abs like an elite athlete and see just how quickly you can turn a so so midsection into a powerful and impressive one in no time at all.

Intense Ab Workout | 7 Minutes (FOLLOW ALONG!)

Intense Ab Workout | 7 Minutes (FOLLOW ALONG!)

Build Muscle in 90 Days –
Subscribe to this channel here –

If you want to develop six pack abs you may think that you have to spend hours a day trying to get one. That is not the case at all. If you are able to commit to a consistent but short effort you will be amazed at how much better your abs could look in a short period of time when combined with a focused attention to what you eat as well.

In this video, I have a short 7 minute ab workout for you to do along with me. As you will see and feel, an ab workout does not have to be long to be effective. As a matter of fact, I would probably say that the longer the ab workout goes, the less effective it becomes. The key to this working is that it is short enough to allow you to do it on a regular basis without having to fight to schedule it into your day.

Remember, the key to getting a six pack is consistency. Now, don’t think that just because you might be doing the same set of exercises that it is becoming less effective. It is not. The choice of ab exercises in this workout is broad enough so as to cover all of the major functions of the abs. There are bottom up movements that better hit the lower abs. There are rotational movements that are initiated from the bottom up and the top down to really hit the rotation capabilities of the core muscles.

There are also top down movements where the shoulders are lifted off of the ground as opposed to the legs, which are situated at the end of the workout to allow you to keep training your abs when they are fatigued. When there are purposeful ab exercises in your workouts they do not have to be long.

The point of this video is to give you a follow along ab workout that you can do anywhere. There are no special pieces of equipment needed to do this. All you need is your body and some space on the floor. You might actually need a bit more than that, and that would be a heavy dose of determination to try and resist the burn of these exercises as you do them. Remember, the pain from ab training is usually only temporary. As soon as finish the exercise and the lactic acid starts to clear the abdominal muscles, you feel normal again.

See if you can follow the entire ab workout along with me, resting when I do. If you need extra rest for some reason, don’t be bashful – take it. Maybe you can only do 40 seconds of one of the 60 second exercises. That’s ok, do what you can and rest for the remainder of that exercise. As you get stronger on these you will be able to do the whole thing without extra rest. Here is the ab workout as follows:

Seated Ab Circles Left x 60 seconds
Seated Ab Circles Right x 60 seconds
Drunken Mountain Climbers x 60 seconds
Rest 30 seconds
Marching Planks x 60 seconds
Scissors x 60 seconds
Starfish Crunch x 30 seconds
Rest 30 seconds
Russian V Tuck Twists x 30 seconds

So there is an ab workout you can do at home with no equipment that will get you started on getting that six pack you’ve always wanted. If you want to speed up the process you will want to make sure your diet is in place as well. If you want a step by step meal plan to get you ripped fast, head to http:/athleanx.com and get the ATHLEAN-X Training System.
