Everyone I’ve every helped lose weight, has had a few things in common.
- They’re Busy – My girls are busy, tired, and stressed constantly trying to find balance in their professional and personal lives.
- They want Easy-to-do, Fun-to-do-workouts – Otherwise… they won’t do it.
- It has to Get Results – Otherwise, what’s the point?!
- They Don’t Want to Work Harder than they Have to… Life is hard enough and they can easily come up with a bajillion better things to do than workout, because they’re busy.
I get it. I know what it’s like to feel overwhelmed and struggling with motivation. I have a brain injury that makes me feel unmotivated and a back injury from a car accident… I also used to be 40 pounds overweight and refuse to gain it back. : )
But even though I struggle with my mood and injuries I still want to exercise to keep my body tight and feel like I accomplished something…. BUT without having to do something super intense.
That’s why I came up with Lazy Girl Workouts in the first place. : ) There are 7 free lazy girl workouts… this workout focuses on the abs.
LAZY GIRL AB WORKOUT
You can do this ab workout whenever you’re feeling unmotivated and want something fun, fast, and effective that will help you get a tight, toned tummy.
These are the exact same ab exercises I do when my knee pain and back injuries act up.
They’re perfect for days when you’re feeling lazy or don’t have time to hit the gym, but still want tight, toned abs.
I think you’re going to love it. See me explain more and share the workout with you in the video below.
How to do this Lazy Girl Ab Workout
- The 5 core exercises in this ab workout utilize my lazy girl rep count rule.
- To rock this workout do each exercise until you feel the burn… once you feel the burn do 5 more. Then you’re done. Ideally, you’ll be doing 15-25 reps. Don’t do more than 25.
- As soon as you’re done, move onto the next exercises, repeating the rep count strategy.
- Try to avoid taking a break between the exercises… This helps keep the heart rate up so you can burn more calories.
- One round of all the exercise counts as 1 full set.
- Do 4 full sets – of all 5 ab exercises – to complete this workout.
- BONUS POINTS: If you do 5 full rounds.
- DOUBLE BONUS POINTS: If you do this with ankle weights. This is totally optional.
Once you’re done with this ab workout, leave me a comment and let me know if you felt the burn.
Pin this ab workout for women to Pinterest so you’ll have it forever.
TIPS FOR THIS LAZY WORKOUT
For the best results, I recommend doing this routine a maximum of one time a week.
If you’re a beginner, rehabbing an injury, or trying to start a new workout routine, lazy girl workouts are perfect for you! Alternate this ab workout with the other lazy girl workouts I made. (linked below)
If you’re more advanced use lazy girl workouts for days when you’re feeling unmotivated.
It’s best to use my other workouts for women instead (if you’re advanced) because they require more movement and burn more calories… which means better results for you. 🙂
- Try this Ab Workout for Women
- This ab workout targets the lower abs “pooch” area… I think you’re going to love it.
- This routine targets the obliques (side of the abs). I made it to help women get a smaller waist.
It only works if you work it, so work it. YOU are so worth it!
If you think this workout will help someone else that’s struggling with motivation, please share it to help another “Lazy Girl” get fit and healthy. 🙂
Did you feel the burn? Which exercise was your favorite? Let me know in the comments. I love hearing what you think.
Sending you so much love

If my stomach is fat won’t this just tighten the fat and not make me look flatter? Also if I stop exercising will it just turn back into fat? I want it gone not just tightened.
This will train the muscles under your fat… to burn the fat covering your abs, you need to follow a meal plan and exercise program (cardio and weight training). I recommend my Total Transformation Challenge. You can learn more about that here, if you’re interested:: https://www.christinacarlyle.com/total-transformation-challenge/

I’m 75 y I and can do this workout. Bit of a struggle at first. Thank you for this work out.
You’re so welcome Billie 🙂 xo

You definitely need to be following a meal plan and complete training program. I recommend my Total Transformation bundles! I know they’ll help you get results FAST! https://www.christinacarlyle.com/total-transformation-challenge/
Repeat it? Oh. my. gosh. I have just started back working out after a year of not, and I could barely even do one set. I will be back. I did not realize just how out of shape I was until I tried this. Oy!!! This lazy girl is dying. XP
Great exercises. I’m going to try them.
It was not pretty but I managed 4 sets. I am 52 and just starting my fit journey. Have a meal plan that I have been doing and have lost 30 lbs. Now to add some exercise and loose the other 60 lbs.
You can do it! xo
Of all the fitness and exercise websites that I have looked at p, yours is the best. It’s easy to navigate, informative and your workouts are brilliant. Thank you so much.
Awwww thank YOU so much!! You just made my day. I’m so happy to hear you’re loving my work. xoxox CC
I sure did feel the burn but I have a short attention span so I was wondering how long this usually takes until you see results.
That depends on how you’re eating. To see results within 2 weeks – guaranteed – use my Total Transformation program. I can get you results a lot(!!) faster with food than workouts. You can learn more about the TT Program here:: https://www.christinacarlyle.com/total-transformation-program/
Hey I was just wondering how many reps should I be doing in a given set.
That’s addressed in the instructions. Don’t do more than 25. xo CC
Just came across your workouts. I have been walking but wanted somethings that would get rid of lower belly pouch. Also with degenerative disc disease in my neck, these exercises would work for me. Thank you!!
You’re very welcome. I’m glad you found me. 🙂
Oh my ? I stumbled upon this and thought “hey that looks easy enough for me!” I got through the windshield wipers, was doing okay. Slow leg lifts I felt the burn earlier. Then the scissor kicks and toe tap crunches did me in. I couldn’t even do 5 reps each! I know the instructions say to do this once a week, but I may be going through your lazy girl series for a little while at this rate!! Thanks for the burn tonight, girlfriend!
You’re welcome! xoxo
