Strengthen and define the entire core with this fast ab circuit workout. Eight of the most effective ab exercises targeting the lower abs, upper abs and obliques – all from a standing position. No equipment needed for this bodyweight core burnout.
Today’s workout challenges the core in a new way using just your bodyweight.
Ab circuit workouts combine a series of complimentary ab exercises, each focused on a different part of the abs. This results in a well-rounded ab workout that targets every muscle in the core.
Standing ab exercises are particularly functional, challenging your core muscles to stabilize the trunk of the body in the same way they do in many of your daily movements.
This leads to improved coordination, better balance, and a stronger core in your everyday life.

Ab Circuit Workout FAQs
What Is A Circuit Workout?
Circuit training is a workout format that alternates between different exercises with minimal rest between exercises. This style of training is extremely effective because you are able to complete a high number of reps in minimal time. Popular types of circuit workouts include full body circuits, leg circuits and HIIT circuits.
Is Circuit Training Good for Abs?
Ab circuits are an effective way to build strength and definition in the core. Combining different ab exercises in one circuit is a great way to strengthen the core from multiple angles.
What Is The Best Ab Exercise?
The best ab exercises are ones that strengthen multiple core muscles at once, such as planks or dead bugs. These muscles include the erector spinae (lower back muscles), obliques (muscles along the sides of the body), rectus abdominis (“six-pack abs” muscles), transverse abdominis (deep core muscles), and posterior and anterior deltoids (back muscles).
