Beginner HIIT Abs Workout

Beginner HIIT Abs Workout on

In this workout, we’re focusing on basic moves to target the abdominal muscles. Instead of doing a precise number of reps for each exercise, we’re doing a “HIIT” high intensity interval training to get that heart rate pumping and increase our fitness while building ourselves a strong core!

  • Goals: fat loss + strength
  • Duration: 16 minutes (+ warmup and stretching)
  • Body part targeted: abs
  • Equipment: none – bodyweight

Workout breakdown

This workout has been developed with a certified personal trainer.

Do each exercise for 30 seconds, rest for 10 seconds and move on to the next exercise.  (Total time: 16 minutes)


Repeat from the top 3 times (4 rounds total)

Cool down and stretching


  • 10 seconds of rest is basically just enough for you to quickly change your position and be ready for the next exercise. You need to be FAST! And that’s what so good about it. No time to capitulate, you just have to give yourself 100% and smash it!
  • For this workout, you will need an interval timer (it’s way too complicated to count in your head and you’ll probably be too gentle with yourself ???? ). I’m using a free app on my phone called “Interval Timer” and it’s perfect for the job. You can download it from the App Store and it’s easy to use (I don’t know if they’re also on Android but I’m sure there’s an equivalent). Here’s how you should configure the timer for this workout:
