Most people rotate through a series of crunches, planks, and sit-ups in their quest for a carved core. While that's not exactly a terrible idea (we love a good plank challenge), it's not a very exciting one, either. If you find yourself snoozing halfway through your ab workout (hey! yoga mats are comfy), combining the core sculpting benefits of yoga and Pilates into one class might just be the magic bullet you've been looking for. The two approaches may differ in philosophy, but they can work together seamlessly for maximum core-tightening results. Better yet, you can master the fundamentals right in your living room.
Ready to see for yourself? In this class, yoga and Pilates expert Tammy Mittell will take you through powerful and effective exercises to target and tone the abdominal wall. You don't need any equipment—and at just 25 minutes, it can fit into even the busiest of schedules. Take that, workout excuses.
