15 Minute At-Home Abs (Workout)

This is a workout that can be done at home, at the gym, on the go, wherever! You don't need anything but yourself and a little space. Planks can be difficult, so I also included a couple variations if you need to lower the difficulty. I also added in some variations to increase the difficulty in case you wanted to challenge yourself more.


1 minute plank

30 seconds rest

1 minute side plank

30 seconds rest

1 minute side plank

1 minute rest

repeat for 3 total sets

Things to focus on:

  • Keep your back straight
  • Keep your abs tight - tighter abs will put less focus on your arms/shoulders
  • Head should be in a neutral position (pictured)
  • Butt in line with your back, not arched up

When doing a side plank:

  • Do not let your hip drop
  • Abs tight - this exercise is focusing on the oblique closest to the ground
  • Top arm on your hip
  • Legs straight 
  • Arm placed on ground perpendicular to your body
