Sometimes you don’t have an hour to spend in the gym. And this is perfectly okay and human. This is why we must take advantage of the small window of opportunity. If you have 4 minutes in your day, you can start losing weight and flattening your stomach. Of course, the more you repeat this short abs circuit, the more results you will see! You can do this fast abs workout at the end of your normal routine. Or you could even work out during your favorite Netflix show and won’t even notice the time.

I was actually in a time crunch myself the other day. I was expecting company for Labor Day weekend and needed to clean my whole house on Friday. Instead of trying to cram in a 45-minute workout, I created this 4-minute abs workout. I can’t be the only one who has days like this, so I wanted to share this workout with you!


The 4-Minute Fast Abs Workout:

Reverse Crunches

Reverse crunches can actually help improve your stability and strengthen your core. Start by lying with your back to the mat and your arms down by your sides. Your knees should be bent at a 90-degree angle.Use your abs to lift your hips off the floor. Hold this crunch for a second and then lower yourself down into the starting position. You can also extend your legs out straight to make it more difficult

Scissor Kicks

Again, start by lying on your mat and bring your arms drop your arms down to the sides. Now, bring your legs a few inches up off the ground. You are going to criss-cross them over each other. Remember to keep your back glued to the floor the whole time.

Leg Lifts

You guessed it, we are starting in the same position. But instead of crunching or kicking, we are simply lifting. Extend those legs out in front of you. Now, exhale as you lift your legs off the floor. Keep those abs engaged and inhale as you lower your legs back down. This is one rep.

Around The World

Start by sitting on your mat with your knees bent at a 90-degree angle and place your hands behind you for support. You basically want to swivel on your butt to one side and bring your legs around in front of you. This exercise is a little hard to explain, but you can watch me in action in the video below.

Single Knee Crunches

Now we’re going to start carving out the sides of your abs. Place your left leg over your right knee. Now bring your hands behind your head and crunch up. Your right elbow should touch the opposite knee. Then lower yourself back to the starting position and repeat!

Elbow Plank

Now we are going to burn it all out with elbow planks. Keep your spine nice and straight as you get up on your toes and elbows. Your elbows should be directly in line with your shoulders. Also, make sure your booty isn’t sticking high up in the air or dropping too low.

  1. Oh thanks for this! I just joined the gym after having a yoga/barre studio membership. I’m on the hunt for exercises I can do on my own and these are great! I hate abs so not having to think about what to do next, and just doing it, helps.

    1. Thanks! I’m so glad I could help. I’d be more than happy to make future ab workouts. I feel like exercise doesn’t have to be boring and love changing things up! Good luck and thanks for reading.

  2. This looks like a great ab routine! Lately I’ve been using an ab wheel but I’m going to incorporate some of these too, to add some more variety to my workout. Thanks for the share!
