Abs & Obliques Workout – 10 Minute Effective Core Workout

Abs & obliques workout

This quick abs and obliques workout only takes 10 minutes of your day to complete. It’s a great core workout that works your abs from all angles. The front and sides of your abs as well as your lower back. One thing to keep in mind during abs workouts is that you can’t just crunch your way to a six pack.

You really need to reduce overall fat, since you cannot spot reduce fat. A great way to reduce body fat is by strength training and high intensity interval training. Although this workout is very effective in toning the core muscles it’s still very important to incorporate other types of training into your daily workout routines, especially since workouts like this one aren’t high in calorie burning.

It’s very easy to hold your breath during workouts like this, where you’re contracting your stomach muscles constantly, so make sure you breathe. And make sure that you’re actually contracting your muscles and hard as possible during each set until your 10 second break. By making sure you’re pulling your stomach in/contracting during this workout you will actually train your body to keep your stomach pulled in naturally, and this contraction also burns more calories.

We are going through 10 different exercises in this routine and each exercise is going to be 45 seconds long.
