A big misconception about training your abs is that it demands tons of time

The truth? You can effectively target your core by doing a bodyweight abs workout just a few times a week

Start in a forearm side plank by propping your body up on your right forearm, with your elbow stacked underneath your shoulder and your hand in front of your body.

Runner's Crunch – Lie faceup with your legs extended and your arms on the floor by your sides. This is the starting position

Bear Crawl – Start on all fours and lift your knees so that they’re at a 90-degree angle and hovering an inch off the ground

Russian Twist – Sit with your knees bent out in front of you, feet flexed, and heels on the floor

It’s up to you to effectively engage your core to make sure you get the full benefit from your core workout

Final tip: Know that core exercises are only as hard as you make them
