8 minute ab workout purely training 82

by purelytwins

Bodyweight ab routine.


Hey beautiful purely fit friend!

I created this workout because it has been FOREVER since I have worked my abs. Lori and I used to do planks almost every day, and that is all we did. We did not have “ab” days. We just did our normal purely fit life home workouts where many use the core indirectly and that was enough to help keep our core lean. But Lori and I do like working our abs.

This year “ab” workouts were not really on our minds. My focus has been on healing my skin and Lori’s focus was on keeping her body strong for her baby while being pregnant.

So I will admit this workout was harder than I thought it would be. Get ready to feel the burn in your belly!

8 minute AB workout you can do anywhere

A great ab routine to squeeze in when you have eight minutes to spare.  Pair this workout with any of our purely training workouts or after a nice long walk or jump rope.

We’ve put together some of the most effective ab exercises to build a strong core! There are countless exercises that target the abs, in this workout we gathered some of our favorite ab moves into one routine.  We hope you enjoy!

Equipment:  bodyweight workout

Style of workout:  8 minute AB circuit

Workout focus: abs

Set Gymboss Interval Timer to 8 rounds of 1 minute intervals

In and out abs is a great a move that combines strength and cardio to tone that midsection!

One of our favorite cardio exercises for abs. In and out abs are killer!

We suggest for different fitness levels:

B-fits (beginner peeps) – Follow modifications from video. Take breaks when needed. For knee to elbow push-up you can do push-ups on your knees. And for the in and out abs you can step feet instead of jumping.  Lower ab raises and flutter kicks you can bend your legs. You can also reduce time to 30 or 45 seconds instead of 1 minute as your build your core strength.

A-fits (advanced peeps) –  Push yourself and limit your breaks.

*disclaimer: make sure to consult with your doctor before trying a new workout routine.

Heather @ FITaspire October 6, 2014 - 4:18 pm

Love this – it looks painful! 🙂 I usually have a few core exercises on most workout days, but no focused abs day.

purelytwins October 6, 2014 - 5:14 pm

same here we usual do core moves in our workouts but every once in awhile we like to focus just on the abs for something fun and different 😉

New to your website and like it’s content so far =-)
Great workout! I did it yesterday after a 25 minute jog as part of my strength routine and really enjoyed it. I have really gotten into doing planks and focusing on abdominal bracing in the past two months due to a severe episode related to sacra-iliac joint dysfunction. I am happy to report that I was able to do all the exercises without any pelvic pain!
