Getting the six-pack you dream about is not only about doing more and more crunches. To best work your abdominal muscles, you need to work your muscles from all angles. The best way to do this is with core moves that work a variety of muscles within one single exercise. You might think of it like multi-tasking your muscles.  Besides giving your abs a complete workout, you will find that you also raise your heart rate which means you are also burning some extra calories.

These moves are best performed following a warm-up (light cardio, at minimum), your regular cardio session, or strength-training workout. Aim to complete the core workout anywhere from 3 to 4 times per week. This is not a rigid program, though. If you can do all of the moves in one workout—do it! If not, pick a few and blend it into your regular exercise program, or pick a few to do each time. Something is always better than nothing.

Find your schedule too full to fit in your regular workout today? Playing on the floor with your kids? Or maybe the only time you have to work out is while the leftovers for dinner are heating up in the microwave. No sweat! You can do this short workout that still packs a burn and even carries your fitness forward.

In teaching boot camp classes, I call this a “Triple Threat”-style circuit. It’s 3 exercises, for 1 minute each, 3 times with minimal pausing. Building up a sweat is inevitable, although, depending on your sweat level, you might be able to skip the shower and save even more time. My 5 month old daughter enjoys it when I incorporate her into this workout.
