When it comes to abs workouts, 15 minutes feels like just enough time to light up your core muscles without leaving you in a literal puddle on the floor.
That’s exactly what you get with this short and sweet workout from Women’s Health trainer Kara Liotta. Using just two to three sets of weights (1-2 pounds, 5 pounds, and an optional 8-pounder will get the job done), you’ll work everything from your six-pack-muscles to those deep-down transverse abdominis muscles in this low-impact sweat session.
You’ll start with a quick bodyweight warmup before delving right into the main event with Liotta. Then you’ll transition into a quickie plank sequence, before picking up the weights for both standing and lying abs series.
Don’t worry: There are modifications for everything! “Meet your body where it is today,” Liotta says, as she offers up beginner and advanced options for everything from which weights to use to the position of your legs in side plank.
