Are you pressed for time but still want to at least get a quick workout in before the day is over? You’re busy taking care of your little baby, changing diapers, helping with multiple feedings and just trying your very hardest to get your baby to fall asleep. 

Or maybe you are running around helping your kids with homework, driving to doctor’s appointments, after school activities and sports.

You basically only have time to blow your nose, but there’s absolutely no time to even take a shower or go to the bathroom. Is that you?

It’s me! I’ve been living that life for 7 years. Coming up with every excuse imaginable to explain to my husband why I can’t get my workout in.

No More Excuses

Well, I’m not an excuse kind of person. I really could justify why I didn’t have time to work out.

I went through every second of my day explaining how there was literally no time to do any type of exercise.

I had a whole basement full of equipment; I had an app that created new workouts with the simple click of a button. I had workout videos and DVD’s stashed away that I could easily pull out.

You name it, I had it. I was fully equipped, but I just couldn’t get it in my head to make it a PRIORITY. My kids were my priority, sleep was a priority, organizing my home and making food were a priority. 

Make Your Workout A Priority


But to be honest, taking care of my body should have been at the top of my list.

Up until just a few months ago, I had no workout routine in place. I did more of a mental workout than a physical workout. I would daydream and picture myself doing these amazing workouts that I had done in my younger years. But I just wasn’t actually getting the job done.

So finally I decided to look up “10 minute ab workout videos”. Abdominals are my absolute favorite muscle group to strengthen; it has been for years, since I was in high school. So I resorted to that, something that was familiar to me. And of course, I wanted to tone up my mommy pooch.

10 Minute Ab Workout on YouTube 

I was surprised to see how many 10 min core workout routines were offered on YouTube. So, I started every week, trying something new -mixing it up so I had a variety to choose from, like my own personal YouTube Ab Workout library!

I wanted to share with you my all-time favorite 10 minute instense ab workout videos from YouTube that are legitimately good workouts, safe, challenging and instructed well by the YouTuber (whether they are a personal trainer, an inspiring fitness coach or a highly trained medical professional).

Squeeze 10 minutes into your day. Wake up 10 minutes earlier, go to bed 10 minutes later, or skip 10 minutes of browsing Instagram or Facebook today and just do this workout instead. I know you can, it just takes determination and commitment. 

Have fun working out to these amazing YouTube 10 min ab workout videos below. They are intense!

This is the workout that started it all for me.

Chloe does a fabulous job of targeting the core in a variety of ways to help you streamline your midsection. 

 BONUS: Standing Ab Workout by Holly Dolke 

If you can’t tolerate the lying down ab routines that involve a lot of crunches where your neck barely can hold the weight of your head, let alone your abs, and you quiver the moment you slightly sit up, then this standing ab routine is the better option for you. Holly Dolke keeps your abs working hard while she stands for each core exercise in this routine. 

Take each one of these 10 minute ab workout videos from YouTube and pick a different one each week. Spend one entire week working on your abs with one trainer, then as you adapt, pick a different video from another trainer. 

You abs will be on fire and looking great in no time if you keep up with a daily routine of ab exercises such as these listed in this post. 

You can also take a moment to glance around their YouTube channels to find other parts of the body to tone and strengthen.
