Fifth Element Abs Workout

Oct 28, 2012 by



Hello My Lovies,

Finally NEW ABS & Core ROUTINE is here! I need to make a new one every other week, cause this will also give me a chance to break up my regular routine. This workout was a bit sneaky, cause it’s one of those routines that you start feeling a few hours later all over your abs.

If you are adding this routine after your regular workout, then you’ve already warmed up. If this is the only routine you are doing for the day then I suggest you do a warm-up first. Make sure to add light card about 15 minutes after, because we always need to combine some kind of metabolic movements.



Workout Explanation


If you are new to Loving Fit, I suggest taking a look at this post ” Creating Your Workout Plan “, there you will be able to figure out how to put a schedule together that will match your fitness level.

In this workout I was using my Gymboss timer and a 10lbs dumbbell. If you don’t have a dumbbell you can substitute it for a different object, get creative, don’t be shy ;).

There are 2 parts in this routine, first part is interval training without breaks, and it’s only 4 minutes long. Second part is done for the proper form and time, remember don’t rush, watch for good exercise form and not your speed or timer.

Be sure to watch workout recap part of the video so you know the proper form of each exercise and variation for beginners.


Part 1

Set your timer for two intervals of 30 second each, for the total of 4 rounds. Or you can set it for 1 interval of 30 seconds and the total of 8 rounds.

There are only 2 exercises and they will follow in this order, twice.


  • Reptile Plank Right Leg
  • Mini Leg Lifts
  • Reptile Plank Left Leg
  • Mini Leg Lifts


Part 2

Set your timer as a stopwatch. There are 6 exercises in this order:


  • Weightless Crunch – 30 reps
  • Flexed Feet count 2 Scissors – 30 reps
  • Pointed Toes Reversed Scissors – 30 reps
  • Weighted Hard Rock Hard Core Exercise – 30 reps
  • Double Side Crunch – 20 reps per each side ( each 2 crunches counts as 1 rep )
  • Weighted Bicycle – 50 reps
My time for part 2 was 14 min 28 seconds.


Have Fun with your training!
