4 Minute Tabata Workout For Abs

Here’s how the Get A Tight Stomach and Buns 4 Minute Tabata Workout is structured:

Total time:

4 minutes.

Type of workout:

Tabata workout:

  • 20 seconds of high intensity work (as many reps as possible with good form)
  • 10 seconds rest

The key is to give maximum effort during the 20 second high intensity interval.

After the 20 second high intensity interval, take a 10 second rest, then complete another 20 second high intensity interval, etc.

Number of circuits:

2 circuits.


Click the links below for a step-by-step exercise demonstration of each exercise.

A1. Step Over to A Duck Under

Reps: 20 seconds

Rest: 10 seconds


Coaching cues: Pretend like you’re stepping over a fence, then immediately ducking under a wire.

A2. Forearm Plank Tap

Reps: 20 seconds

Rest: 10 seconds


Coaching cues: This is like the traditional forearm plank with a small modification to make it more challenging. Start by getting into the forearm plank position, then keeping core nice and engaged to keep your hips straight and parallel to the floor, lift one elbow off the ground and extend your arm to tap the water bottle or a dumbbell. This modification adds a nice twist the plank exercise. If the forearm plank tap is too difficult, complete the standard forearm plank. You can also modify the standard forearm plank by doing it from your knees.

Rest: 10 seconds

A3. Reverse Lunge with Knee Drive

Reps: 20 seconds

Rest: 10 seconds


Coaching cues: Complete a reverse lunge then drive your knee up and forward with intensity. To maintain your balance, focus on keeping your core engaged. You should also be feeling this in your glutes (i.e. your buns). For the first round, complete all the reps with one leg, then switch legs for the next round.

A4. Forearm Side Plank with Reach Under (Top Leg Elevated)

Reps: 20 seconds

Rest: 10 seconds

Forearm Side Plank with Reach Under (Top Leg Elevated)

Coaching cues: This is a great plank variation that targets the side of the abs, the obliques. Make sure your shoulder is aligned above your elbow. Lift your top leg if you want a little extra challenge. If that’s too difficult drop the leg and keep your feet stacked on top of each other. You can also make this exercise easier by doing it from your knees.

That’s the first circuit completed.

After you finish the first circuit you should be feeling winded.

Rest for 10 seconds, then repeat the A1-A4 exercises 1 more time, for a total of 4 minutes.

That’s It!
