Perfect Abs Workout Plan For Beginners

If you’re just starting a fitness routine and looking for a beginner abs workout, you may think sit-ups and crunches are necessary evils. But good news–you can skip ’em and still see results. This routine hits your entire core with just four moves—and not one of them is a crunch.

Here’s How To Do This Workout:

V-Ups — 8 reps
Scissor Switch — 8 reps
Forearm Side Plank With Elbow Twist — 8 reps (each side)
Plank Hops — 8 rep

Repeat 5x

This routine doesn’t include any rest (to keep your heart rate elevated) and will take you about 10 minutes to complete. However, take a quick breather between sets and rest when you need it.

Equipment needed: None.

1. V-Ups — 8 reps

Lie face up with your arms and legs extended and resting on the floor.
Keep your abs tight and lift your hands and feet to meet over your torso.
Lower your arms and legs back to the floor.
That’s 1 rep, do 8.

2. Scissor Switches — 8 reps

Start on your back with your legs straight and arms reaching over head.
Extend the right leg as you curl up off the shoulder blades and reach for the calf or thigh. Staying in a curled position, switch legs.
That’s 1 rep, do 8.

3. Forearm Side Plank With Elbow Twist — 8 reps (each side)

Come into a forearm side plank on your left side with your left elbow resting on the floor below your shoulder. Place your right hand behind your head, elbow towards the ceiling.

Without letting your hips drop, rotate your torso toward the floor, bringing your right elbow to meet your left hand.
Reverse the movement to come back to the starting position.
That’s 1 rep, do 8. Switch sides.

4. Plank Hops — 8 reps

Begin in high plank with your feet together.
Tighten your abs, and jump your feet to the right, bringing your knees toward your right elbow.
Jump your feet back to plank and repeat on the opposite side.
That’s 1 rep, do 8. Repeat this circuit 5x total.
