About This Workout

This workout will help you strengthen (and stretch) your abdominals, obliques, lower back, and hipsâ€"without any equipment. Coach Nicole will take you through one short set of 10 exercises (plus stretches) for a complete core challenge.
  • Length: 15 minutes
  • Equipment: Body weight, mat (optional, for cushioning)
  • Type of Workout: Strength training (toning) & flexibility
  • Muscles Worked: Core (abs, obliques, hips, lower back)
  • Fitness Level: Beginning to advanced; since this workout has few transitions, it may also be suitable for individuals with limited mobility.
  • Impact: Low-impact
  • Safety Precautions: A mat will help cushion your body while lying on the floor. Since this video will work your muscles to fatigue, rest at least 1-2 days before doing additional abdominal/core exercises.
  • Extra Tip: Only complete as many exercises as you can, taking a break as needed. As you progress, try to finish the entire video.

  • This is really a very good work out. I had to modify when I came to the bicycle crunches as it causes me severe back pain to do that, but i just did some ordinary crunches like I had done previously in the video for that section. Thanks SP :) - 4/11/2014 9:32:19 AM
  • I just viewed the video and saved the copy to my desktop. It looks like a GREAT ab workout. I'm not sure I can do it or not, but I intend on trying here shortly. Thank you Coach Nicole. - 4/6/2014 8:09:04 PM
  • I just started this exercise today and it was hard. I'm 45yrs. old and thought I was in good shape but I was wrong. I have this belly fat that I just don't like and I wanted to tone it up. I was looking for an exercise that wouldn't take a lot of my time and came across your 15 minute video by accident and I'm glad I decided to watch it. I just wanted to say Thank You for making it. - 4/5/2014 2:32:57 PM

  • Great workout. I was looking for something to mix things up a bit after finishing the 28 day bootcamp workout and this was a great one to start with. - 2/17/2014 5:00:05 PM
  • Great video! - 2/6/2014 3:21:01 AM
  • Sounds works OK on mine! I do this video several times a week. As of today, I am able to do the harder version of all the exercises -- even the planks and hip lifts on my hands instead of elbows. I am amazed how consistency actually makes a difference! - 1/15/2014 8:08:41 AM
  • Did anyone else have a problem with the abs video having no sound? The commercial before the video worked fine, so I know it wasn't my computer....
    Was able to follow by watching her, but it made it a lot harder! - 1/13/2014 1:25:22 PM
