My Favorite 10-mins Ab Workout

If you have read my previous post on my workout schedule http://stayfitandtravel.blogspot.hk/2014/11/my-daily-schedule-workouts-and-diet.html, you would see that I sometimes squeeze in a mini Abs workout on the days that I am not doing Kayla's abs workouts. Most of these mini Abs workouts last for 10 minutes but occasionally when I feel like I want to do more (maybe after a day of cheat meals LOL) I would do a 15/20 minutes ab workouts by mix-and-match-ing some of my favorite abs exercises. These short Abs workout sessions are also great when you are having a super busy and packed day with no time to hit the gym/ do a full BBG workout. 


Mini 10-mins Abs Example (1-min for each of them)
1. Full Body Sit Up
2. Single Leg Raise
3. Double Leg Raise Crunch
4. Butterfly Kicks
5. X Mountain Climber Twist
6. Weighted Russian Twist (5kg)
7. Ab Bikes
8. Side Plank (Right side)
9. Side Plank (Left side)
10. Medicine Ball Passes

Additional Abs Exercises to add on/ mix-and-match with the ones above
1. Plank
2. Legs Circles
3. Starfish Crunch
4. Oblique Crunch
5. Reach Throughs
6. Weighted Toe Taps (8kg)
7. The Roll
8. Full Body Sit Up
9. Straight Leg Sit Up Twist
10. V-Crunches

I learned most of these Abs workouts from https://www.youtube.com/user/XFitDaily and also Kayla's BBG  -  and basically I just mix and match them myself so I would be doing a different set of Abs workout everyday! You can take a look at the youtube videos if you are wondering how to do some of the exercises (:

  1. Hi Emi. I came across your acct via Kayla's IG. You are such an inspiration! Good job for all your hardwork. I am on Week 8 of Kayla's program but no progress. Is it common for you to feel bloated during this period? I feel my body like got bigger. :( I know rest is essential in ensuring further progress. How often do you rest?

    1. Hello girl! I have one rest day per week (but sometimes I still workout too I am too active hahahaha) but it really depends on each person! bear in mind dont over exhaust yourself. For me I actually never paid too much attention to bloating I was not sure (because I only looked at my progress once a week when I had to take the progress photo and because it was always in the morning before I ate anything, I also felt like I looked good hahahahahaha sorry for being so shameless ;p) but do you feel like your body got bigger cuz of fat or muscle? You can alwasy increase your cardio for it (: I did increase one LISS per week from Week 6- Week 8 xx

  6. While the mainstream fitness media still insists that aerobic
    exercise is a great way to lose weight, Turbulence Training users
    know that interval training is the better way to burn body fat.

    Still not convinced?

    A recent study published by the North American Association for the
    Study of Obesity, subjects aged 40 to 75 were instructed to do 60
    minutes of aerobic exercise per day for 6 days per week for an
    entire year.

    Given the amount of exercise, you'd expect weight losses of 20, 30
    pounds, or more, right?

    Well, the surprise findings showed the average fat loss for female
    subjects was only 4 pounds for the entire year, while men lost 6.6
    pounds of fat over the year. That's over 300 hours of aerobic
    exercise just to lose a measly 6 pounds of blubber. Not time well
    spent, in my opinion.

    So what's the better way? Stick with Turbulence Training, using
    interval training and strength training to get better bodysculpting
    results. With intervals, you'll achieve more fat burning results in
    less workout time.

    The next time you are out exercising, perform a session of interval
    training. If you are walking or running outside, find an incline
    that can challenge you for 60 seconds, then walk down for 60-120
    seconds, and repeat up to 6 times.

    If you walk or run on a treadmill, adjust the incline or speed to
    safely increase the challenge for 60 seconds, then return to the
    normal pace for 60-120 seconds, and repeat up to 6 times.

    You can also use a rowing machine, bicycle or stationary bike, or
    even an elliptical machine to do intervals.

    But whatever you do, stay away from boring, ineffective cardio
    exercise workouts and stick with Turbulence Training for your fat
    burning program.

    "I'm 25 and was seriously overweight at the start of this year. I've
    been doing the TT for Fat Loss Workouts and after 5 months of
    training. I've lost nearly 28lbs. I want to take this opportunity
    to thank Craig for making your knowledge so accessible and your
    articles and blogs that not only make us think about our
    lifestyles, but encourage us to change them for better health."

    "Turbulence Training makes so much sense and I really enjoy the
    different workouts so never get bored. From an aussie that was
    looking for something other than just another weight workout
    with the same old moves this has been a real eye opener for me and
    I have been telling my friends just how great the TT method is."
