This 20-minute core workout is for working your abs quickly and effectively using only a kettlebell.

It’s divided into three circuits that will get you sweating in no time. Do each circuit three times for the best results. For this workout, a 30 second break between each round is best.

This video is part of a series of short 20-minute kettlebell workouts, coming out every Wednesday each targeting a different part of the body.

We created them for anyone who doesn’t have much time to spend at the gym, but still wants a challenging and effective workout.

Next week’s 20 minute kettlebell workout, out on Wednesday August 7th, focuses on arms. Last week’s kettlebell workout focused on glutes.
