The 30-Minute Abs Workout Program is pretty straightforward: By implementing a variety of exercises that hit every part of your abs week after week, you'll make sure your entire midsection gets shredded.

Today's workout is a perfect example of that philosophy. Instead of doing endless crunches, situps, or planks, you can train your abs and obliques from multiple angles with plyometric moves like ball slams, stability-enhancing moves like farmer's walks, and balance-intensive moves like Russian twists.


Complete all three exercises in order. For the first two exercises, you should do 3 to 4 sets. For the farmer's walk, do 4 to 6 sets depending upon how many sets you feel you can complete without overworking yourself.
