Working out is difficult for most people to do on a regular basis. The main issue that arises is making time to go to the gym. When you factor in the time it takes to get there, warm up, workout, stretch, cool down, wash up, and get home, it can add up to a good hour or two of your time.

While at-home workouts are more convenient, many take a 30-45 minutes we simply don’t have to spare. That’s why this 7-minute core workout is so great. When you’re low on time, doing bodyweight exercises is your best option (1).

Also, it’s better to work out multiple muscle groups at the same time than isolating specific muscles. Exercises like the ones below will burn calories, improve flexibility, and build strength all at once (2).

Intelligent, effective, and high-intensity, this quick workout is exactly what you need to tone up your midsection and strengthen your back.

Best of all, this at home ab workout even has some killer cardio in the mix.

After trying this workout, you’ll even feel in your shoulders and pelvic floor, so it’s best not to do it every day.

7-Minute At Home Ab Workout

To use this workout, perform each exercise for 30 seconds, resting 5-10 seconds before moving to the next item. The goal is to perform as many repetitions possible for each exercise without breaking form. You’ll be able to do more as your body gets used to it.

  1. Stand with your feet at shoulder-width apart. Keep your core engaged.
  2. Shift your weight onto your right leg and bend your left knee lifted to a 90-degree angle. Place your arms in front of you as if you’re climbing a ladder.
  3. Extend your left arm over your head as you push off right foot to lift your right knee to hip-height. Pull your left arm down as you lower your right leg and shift your weight.
  4. Alternate your legs and arms as quickly as you can as you repeat the exercise.
