Today I’m sharing an at home ab workout that you can do with a minimal amount of equipment.
As usual for me I used the Peloton app for my workout yesterday morning. I honestly didn’t have a whole lot of motivation. I would have much rather turned my alarm off, roll over, and go back to sleep. But I got myself out of bed, dressed, and ready to workout. I was scrolling through the app trying to figure out what I was in the mood for. I finally decided on a cardio HIIT workout. I’ve only done a few of those on the app so far, so I thought that it would be nice to do something a bit different than my usual strength training workouts.
I was very grateful that the 20 minute workout flew by and I was done before I knew it. I love workouts that go by fast like that. I’m pretty sure it was because each interval was so short and although I worked really hard during each one, it felt like I was never doing the same thing for very long. Be sure to follow me on Instagram for a peek into my daily workouts.
And now onto the at home ab workout that I put together to share today!
In terms of equipment you’ll only need two things – a stabiliaty ball and a dumbbell. For the stability ball, I have one similar to this one (affiliate link) that I really like. For the dumbbell you’ll be lifting it above your shoulders so you’ll want one on the light side. These dumbbells (affiliate link) on Amazon are a great choice if you don’t have any at home. If you’re unsure about what weight dumbbells you should be using for the halos, I would opt for something lighter. You can always increase the weight the next time you do this workout.
This is a great add-on to the end of a cardio or strength training workout. If you’re short on time it’s also the perfect way to sneak in a short workout if you can’t commit to a full fledged workout. Starting at the top of the list with the plank, you’ll do each exercise for the specified number of reps or time. Your core should be on fire by the time you’re done! It’s a pretty straightforward workout so it doesn’t need a whole lot of explanation.
If you’re looking for a longer workout, or one that focuses on another body part then be sure to check out my workout page. It’s easy to find exactly the workout that you’re looking for because I have the workouts divided up into categories.
