Just because you can't get to the gym doesn't mean you have to neglect your exercise. One of the easiest body parts to work on without going to a gym or needing fancy workout equipment are your abs. With just a few simple basic exercise tools, you'll have everything you need to get in a solid workout that targets these very important muscles of the midsection. What's even better is this routine only takes a few minutes, so you can get the job done no matter how busy your schedule.
Follow this quick ab workout and you'll be sculpting some washboard abs in no time. All you'll need is a Swiss Ball, a pull-up bar (or something sturdy to hang from), and 20-minutes. No more excuses. If you truly want shredded abs of steel just knock these stomach moves out a few times a week.
