If you’re looking to get a lean and defined midsection in no time, the kettlebell abs workout is the perfect choice for you. It combines full-body exercises and abs-focused moves into one sweat-inducing routine that’ll leave your core feeling sore tomorrow.

Kettlebells have a constantly changing center of gravity, which means your body needs to work harder to keep stable when you’re training with them, says Karolina Duncan, a New York City-based certified personal trainer and health coach. This makes them a great bridge between strength and cardio.

Kettlebell Ab Exercises You Need to Add to Your Fitness Routine

Here’s how to get started:

Stand with your feet wider than hip-width apart, holding a kettlebell in your right hand with a neutral grip at chest height. Engage your core and press the kettlebell up to the ceiling.

Kettlebell Exercises for Killer Abs

Pull your left arm back toward the side of your body with a straight and locked elbow, avoiding rotating your body. Return to plank position and perform 10 reps.

Single-handed deadlift x 12: Start in a half-kneeling position with your hands slightly wider than shoulder width. Hold the kettlebell in your right hand with a slight bend in your elbow.

Push off to your left with your right foot, keeping the kettlebell up and pressing your left elbow into the floor. Lift your left leg and sweep it underneath you until at least your knee touches the ground, then lower yourself back to the starting position.

Rowing the kettlebell x 12: Start in a high plank position with your hands under your shoulders and the kettlebell placed next to your left hand, keeping your wrists under your body and your core engaged. Grab the handle of the kettlebell with your right hand and row it up past your back, keeping your hips and torso squared forward at all times.
