Killer Cardio And Core Workout:

This workout, while tough, is relatively straightforward. You’ll warm up with a jog, followed by sprint intervals. The intervals should consist of 1-minute regular speed followed by a 1-minute sprint. If this is too much for you, change it up to two minutes regular speed followed by a 30-second sprint. The intensity is totally up to you, so work at your level.

Then, you’ll get into some core work: Russian twists on the floor while holding a medicine ball (25 reps), followed by leg raises (25 reps), V-up crunches (25 reps) and a minute of planks.

Next, give your abs a break by getting into another round of sprint intervals (10 minutes).

For you final core circuit, you’ll do 25 bicycle crunches, 25 heel touches and finish with a 60-second plank. The circuit closes out with another sprint interval.

Take a moment to rest (no longer than a minute or two!), before starting the circuit over again, beginning with the ball Russian twists. Complete the whole circuit for total of three times, for a killer core workout that will reveal those flat, sculpted abs in no time.

Don’t forget to cool down and stretch when it’s all over!
