You do not need to spend so much time doing exercise, the more intense it is guaranty an effective result.  

Looking fitting at all times is possible if you can try out this 20 minutes on your ab workout with just three simple moves.

This ab targeted workout will  leave you completely burn in no time, no heavy gym equipment is required, just a workout mat and a fitted workout outfit will do.

Note that it is always better to check with your doctor before engaging in any form of exercise, especially if you are under medications or going through a mild or severe medical condition.

Do all three moves, 20 seconds each, totalling one minute. Then repeat the circuit twice more for a total of three minutes.

Bunny hop

  • Begin in a plank position with the feet together.

  • Pull your abs in and jump your feet to the right, bringing your knees toward your right elbow. Your torso will twist to the right.

  • Jump your feet back to plank to complete one rep.

  • Repeat on the other side, and continue alternating sides for 20 reps total.


  • Start in a seated position with your knees bent and feet off the floor. Your chest should be open and lifted. This is similar to a modified boat pose in yoga.

  • With your arms by your sides, slowly unfold from your seated v by simultaneously lowering your torso and legs toward the floor. Stop when your legs are around a 45-degree angle, or when you feel your lower back arch away from the floor. Be sure to keep your head and shoulders off the floor and your lower back pressed into the mat.

  • With your core tight and tucked, use your abs to return to the starting position.

  • Repeat for 20 seconds, moving slowly and with control.

Elbow plank with hip dips

  • From an Elbow Plank position, slowly rotate the spine to lower your right hip to just above the floor. Come back to Elbow Plank.

  • Now lower the left hip toward the floor.

  • This counts as 1 rep.

  • Do as many reps as you can for 20 seconds.
