Equipment Yes

Now that you've reached week two of the 30-Minute Abs Workout Program, this workout should seem familiar to you. Once again, we're doing 3-4 sets of three different exercises that target different parts of your obliques. If you kept to three sets last week, see if you can do four this week. If you can't, that's totally fine, but you shouldn't do fewer sets just because it's easier. To get the abs you want, you need to earn them.


Complete all three exercises in order, doing 3 to 4 sets of each.
