Looking for a fast way to get a six-pack? Try this super-quick and effective 10 minute ab workout for a toned stomach and stronger core.

 

Whether you want to do it in the morning, before work, in the evening, while watching TV - everyone can spare 10 minutes a day for that hot summer body. It sounds too good to be true, but there’s no more time needed to work your way to a six-pack.
Contrary to popular belief, crunching is not the most effective ab exercise. Crunches only work the muscles on the front and sides of your abdomen, but it's important to target all the muscles of the core to get more defined abs. This workout is so effective because it’s about quality, not quantity. Get ready to warm up the body and feel your midsection burn!

 

10 Minutes Core Workout

Do the exercises as sets with 12 reps. For example, you'll do one set of snap jumps, rest, do a second set, rest, do the third set. Then, move on to the next exercise. Do this workout four times a week. Also, remember - eating clean is crucial for making your abs visible, since they only come out if you have relatively low body fat. Abs are made in the gym, but revealed in the kitchen.
Ready? Let’s go!
