The 7 Best 60-Second Moves for Bikini-Ready Abs

We’ll just say it (because we know you’re thinking it): crunches are totally boring. We like to think our abs share that same belief, and that’s why they’ve never been very receptive to the exercise. So in an effort to get our abs in shape for summer, we’re ditching the dozens-of-crunches approach and trying a set of targeted core-sculptors instead. So targeted, in fact, they only require 60 seconds per move. Yes, you heard right—60 seconds.

Before you decide that this sounds too good to be true, give the sequence a try. Angela Leigh, Group Fitness Manager at Equinox, carefully crafted each one of the exercises in this series of seven, and she wasn’t messing around. Your abs will be burning (in the best way possible).
