Sometimes you just need to knock out a workout at home quickly because you are short on time but you need it to be intense enough and work as much muscles as possible. So it would be great to have a go-to workout for the abs and obliques.

Ripped Abs

You can do this by combining two stability ball exercises into one and make a complete workout by using it.


The first move is doing stability ball pikes and rollouts. That works your abs very well and it’s intense enough alone.

Skier Twists

After finishing a single pike, do a twist to one side. Then complete another pike and a twist to another side. That’s one rep.

The Workout

The complete routine then is the following:

  • Do pikes with twists until you fail to continue
  • Rest 10 seconds
  • Do only pikes until failure
  • Rest 10 seconds
  • Do only skier twists until failure

After you complete the routine, you can go for more rounds if you have time and energy. A workout like this is fast and intense and can be done at home as long as you have the stability ball handy.
