You can get an effective, quick ab workout in with these 4 exercises. In fact, it was one of the most advanced ab workouts I’ve ever done.
THE CORE TRAINER EXERCISE MACHINE
I stumbled upon this piece of equipment in my gym. It looks like a rowing machine lifted up on an incline. You basically begin each movement in an inclined plank position with your forearms resting on a pad and hands gripping a fixed bar. Your knees and shins rest on a pad that glides up (knees up to chest) and down (back into a plank position). From there, you can complete all types of plank variation exercises.
HOW TO DO CORE TRAINER WORKOUTS AT HOME
Don’t have a core trainer machine? You could modify this workout at home using something about 1 foot off of the ground such as the first step of a staircase or a low bench/chair and either paper plates (for carpet) or towels (for tile). Rest your forearms on the step and place the plates/towels under your feet to reduce the friction so you can glide through these movements.

WORKOUT SUMMARY: SAVE IT TO YOUR PHONE!
Here’s an image you can easily save to your phone to reference when you’re working out. In fact, I created a folder in my phone called “workouts” and I save all sorts of ideas there. I screen shot my workouts for the week and I can easily reference them.
