The Ultimate Belly Workout: How to Get Flat Abs in 5 Minutes Daily

Target the Right Muscles with the Right Moves

Everyone loves a quick workout. Especially those people that are on the move and don’t have time to get a traditional workout in.

The hard thing about this is finding a quick workout that is actually effective and worth your time.

The good thing is that there are plenty of effective workouts that are worth your time, even if you have very little of it.

5 Minute Abs

It’s always nice to get an ab workout in. One that is short and sweet. You don’t want to be running around during your busy schedule and not be able to get some kind of workout in.

The following workout is a great one for those that are short on time. Even better is that you don’t need very much room to complete this workout.

  • Mountain Climbers – 60 seconds
  • V-Crunch – 60 seconds
  • Superman Plank – 60 seconds
  • Side Plank (Right) – 30 seconds
  • Side Plank (Left) – 30 seconds
  • Windshield Wipers – 60 seconds

Give yourself very minimal rest time. Transition to the next exercise as quickly as possible.

Mountain Climbers

Mountain climbers are going to target your lower abs.

The faster you can move your feet during the exercise, the more you’re going to get out of it during the one minute. Make sure you bring your knees to your chest with each step. Getting the full range of motion with this exercise will allow you to get the most out of the minute of work.

Reverse Crunch

This is a great follow up to the mountain climbers because reverse crunches will also allow you to target your lower abs region.

The lower abs are hard to burn fat from so these two minutes of work will be great for helping you shed a little more fat in this area.

Make sure you bring your knees to your chest. You want to get the most work for what you’re doing.

Plank Jacks

This is going to target your entire abdomen.

If you’ve done a normal plank before, then you know exactly how tough it can be to hold for an extended period of time.

Adding the jack part for this exercise makes the plank that much tougher. You are forcing all areas of your abdomen to work much harder than they already are.

Remember, this is a short workout, so the more work you an do in a short amount of time, the better.

Side Plank

Since we’ve covered the entire front side of your abs. It’s time to focus on your obliques.

Side planks are perfect for just that. You will solely be working your obliques. Not many people focus on their obliques so it wouldn’t be a surprise if they are pretty weak to begin with.

You can build up strength fast, though. Even if you can only hold a side plank for 15 seconds, you are greatly improving how strong your obliques truly are.

Winshield Wipers

You’ll be able to get more oblique work with windshield wipers. Along with that, you’ll be working the front side of your abs as well.

The stronger you become, the lower you’ll be able to move your legs. When you’re just beginning, you shouldn’t move your legs too close to the ground because you may not be able to move them back up.

Feel the exercise out and slowly go down lower and lower each time you go down.
