Intermediate HIIT Abs Workout

Intermediate HIIT Abs Workout - See the workout details on

In this workout, we’re focusing on intermediate 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! Warning: your abs will be BURNING after that workout – but it’s a good burn!!

  • Goals: fat loss + strength
  • Duration: 20 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: 20 minutes) – Use a timer for more efficiency (see below)


Repeat from the top 2 times (3 rounds total).

If three rounds is too much for you, two rounds will still make a great workout.

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:
