3 Minutes and 3 Moves Away From Strong, Sculpted Abs

You might not be sporting a bikini anytime soon, but you still want to maintain that strong, sculpted tummy, and three minutes is all it takes. Here are three effective moves to tone your lower, middle, and upper abs that make for a perfect postcardio core workout. For even more of a burn, repeat this circuit two or three times.

Lying Bent-Knee Leg Extension

Keep the lower back planted on the floor as you slowly alternate lowering each heel to the floor for one minute.

Roll-Up Crunch and Punch

Repeat as many punches as you can for one minute.

Plank With Alternating Leg Lift

Hold your torso parallel with the ground, and keep the core strong as you slowly alternate lifting each leg for an entire minute.
