Simply Cut Abs Workout

Nov 12, 2012 by



Hello My sweets,

I am back with another abs routine :), I wanted to start making more routines for the abs so we can have a bigger archive of them. We have so many lower body, upper body but not very many abs.

This is a very simple routine, it should take you about 10-12 minutes to finish it, but don’t be fooled by it’s simplicity, it was quite hard. You can add this routine after any of your other upper or lower body workouts, or you can do it on a separate day, but make sure to add at least 15 min of cardio after, that way you get some kind of metabolic exercises inn.

If you are new to Loving Fit, I suggest you taking a look at ” Creating Your Workout Plan ” post, you will find different workout schedules there and you can taylor one for your self.



Workout Explanation


All you will need for this routine is your Gymboss timer.

Very important point in this workout is to not take any breaks, if you really need to you can take 3-5 sec here and there, but try not to.

You will do 3 rounds of the following in this order:


  • Laying Knee Inn-Ups – 20 reps
  • Split V-Hold – 35 sec ( you will use your timer to keep track of time )
  • Stretching Elbow Reptile Plank – 20 reps
  • Split V-Hold – 35 sec
  • Split-up & Knee To Elbow – 10 reps per side ( 20 total )


Beginners will do same reps but using the variations I went over in Workout Recap.


Have Fun!




PS – I got my tights on ebay.

    Second!! 😀 😀 yay another ab workout..thanks Tati!

  • Thank you :), that bra is so old I don’t even remember, I got it over 2 years ago, and now the back sticker had been erased, I wish I knew what brand it was so I can purchase it again, cause I love the cut.

  • steffi_dk

    nice workout, thanks:) and again with music, how unusual, but it fits in. did you create the music?

    • Hey,

      Yes just wanted something different, this one was royalty free music.

  • A bear hug back Tati.:)))

    I used this as my cardio today. It took 12:23 for me to complete 2 rounds, 35sec split holds were deadly. Even in yoga, I struggle with split hold. I’ll give this another go in a week to see if I can complete 3 rounds. The routine looks easy, but my abs was on fire on every exericise.

    • It does look easy doesn’t it :), I though that too then I tried it)))

  • I will do it today. It looks like a great workout. Tatiana, can you write about FORGIVENESS and how can you deal with a person who is a bully.

  • I did it today. My time was 15 minutes. I ended up with the Bum of Steel Challenge.
    Thank you!

  • Great! I just finished this. I did day 2 of the B&T challenge, then a 25 min barefoot (barefoot shoes) run (still working my way up), then this to close it out. Tomorrow is a complete day off. I really like the v-moves, like the v-hold and then the last one. I have no idea how long it took me–probably about 15 min. Thanks for this and everything! 🙂

    • You guys are always so sweet :), and always thanking me, it’s me that has to thank you guys for working out with me and being part of my life.

    welcome Nelly…you’ve found one of the best sites around…dig in, look around and have fun 🙂

    • Nelly

      Thank you Gerri, nice to meet you 🙂

    all done Tati 🙂 warmed up, then did 10 x 10/20 HKS to start off. I like this ab routine, deceptive and effective…curious if I feel any soreness tomorrow. I finished off with running 50 sets of stairs, my staircase has 16 steps, took me 11:42….then banged out 50 bridges with my shoulders on a swiss ball

    • My goodness you are a machine!

  • Hi Nelly,

    Welcome to Loving Fit!! So happy to have you with us 🙂

    • Nelly

      Thank you dear, I am really happy I found you 🙂

  • Mary Lou

    Ack! I did this before the Booty Pop Siren and forgot about the B & T of Steel Challenge! I guess I’ll have to squeeze that into my day off tomorrow, that should work. This is now my new favorite ab routine!

    • Sometimes I do the challenge before bed time, but you can always fit it in another day.

      • Mary Lou

        Thanks Tatianna, I will keep that in mind for next time. Since I had just had a bowl of sauerkraut and kimchi, I decided not to push my luck!

  • I really love this rutine tatianna.

  • Did this one again tonight! It’s weird–this one kind of gets easier as the rounds go. I think it’s the v-split holds. They get easier each time. Not sure if that’s a mental thing, or a physical one. It’s great, though. I really feel it in my lower abs. The last exercise is the hardest for me. 🙂

    Tomorrow I’m taking a day off and Thursday I want to wake up fresh and get in a great workout before mah tuuurkkeeeey! I love the apple pie recipe you posted. I love desserts like that. I grew up in a house with no sugar, so it always feels homey and good to make healthy desserts like that. 🙂

    Hi there,

    This was my first Tatianna style workout after my surgery ( I started last week with some other, light workouts), and it took me 17:30 minutes, and after I did 15 minutes of light cardio..

    Let me tell you I felt like I will die…couldn’t catch my breath, my lungs burned…well after 2 weeks on my couch, and feeling sick if I had to go to a store, I am glad that I have finished all 3 rounds, and did some cardio after…

    well…I am slowly coming back

    kisses to you all

  • I revisited this workout yesterday. My warm-up was 5 minutes Crazy Workout.

  • This workout is no joke!!! I felt every rep of every exercise on my abs 🙂 I completed it after Bois Blonde Booty Workout, it was perfect and felt so energized at the end. It took me 18:40 maybe not the best time but I paid attention on working those abs to the max!! I also completed week 2 on Sharper abs in a month challenge, 10 minutes of cardio and stretching at the end! Awesome workout Tati, thank you so much!!

  • Diana

    I did this routine yesterday. It was a nice burn during the workout and now I truly feel it in my abs. So far my favourite abs-only routine was the Perfect Abs Afterglow, but this one is also a really great routine. I think I will repeate this many times in the future! 😀 Thank you, Tati! 🙂

  • I completed it again after a 10 minute warm up and “Fasted State Fat Burn Workout”, This was amazing and my time improved from last time, 12 days ago! I finished it in 17 minutes! 1 minute and 40 seconds less than last time! yes, it did hurt the same hahaha! but I was able to do exercises in a better and more controlled form, I just loved it! I finished with 10 minutes “Light Cardio” Routine. Thank you Tati, I am so in love with your workouts!

  • Today … I iwll put my friend to do this workout! Thanks.
