Last year around this time, I was working out with one of my old strength coaches from Florida State and he showed me his newest ab circuit: Ten Minute Abs. Three great things about this workout: 1) it’s very flexible and customizable, 2) it’s an ab killer, and 3) it’s only 10 minutes!

Basically, you do ab exercises for 10 minutes straight. Every 30 seconds, you switch to a different exercise, so you’re doing 20 different exercises. I’ve included some of my favorites below, so you can pick from the list below or come up with your own! I always love to start with a plank circuit, which I’ve separated into the top 9 exercises below, and then pick from the rest of the list for the second half of the workout.

Have fun with it, and enjoy your new abs 🙂

For those of you out there who recognize the benefits of sprinting as well as circuit training, this video is for you! This is a fast-paced sprint circuit that can be tailored to your fitness level simply by how many times you go through it! Beginners or advanced athletes on an active recovery day can run through it 1-3 times, while advanced athletes can get a great workout on a heavy day by doing this 6+ times.

So here it is:

50 yard sprint

10 pushups + 10 mountain climbers + 10 frog jumps

50 yard sprint

20 bodyweight squats + 10 reverse crunches + 20 lunge jumps

Rest 2 minutes, repeat!

Remember, today is the only day that matters. It’s not what you did yesterday, or what you plan to do tomorrow that counts. What will you do with your TODAY?
