2. 10-Minute Beginner Ab Exercises – Showbiz Cheatsheet
Showbiz Cheatsheet has compiled a list of awesome 10-minute ab exercises for beginners. I love that this list includes mountain climbers, one of my favorite (and go-to) core exercises. If you want to feel the burn, do these!

Coach Magazine is coming in hot with this list of the best ab exercises for any level of gym-goer.
This list includes one of my all-time favorite core workouts: the Russian twist (talk about a burn!).
4. Best Core Exercises for Beginners – Runner’s World
Runner’s World is one of my favorite sources for all things running – what I love about them is that they don’t just provide information for runners – their site has information for all types of fitness.
I love that this list of exercises for your core includes very easy-to-understand pictures demonstrating how to do the exercises.
I also love that they include the Superman – another one of my favorite core exercises!

Shape Magazine is a terrific magazine for anyone trying to get in shape or trying to stay in shape.
This list of easy core exercises for women does not disappoint. This is another great list with some awesome pictures to go along with, so that it is easy for you to figure out how to do the exercises themselves.
6. Best Ab Exercises of All Time – Women’s Health Magazine
Women’s Health Magazine is, yet, another favorite of mine! I love that they focus on everything for women’s health: fitness, mental health, physical health, diet, etc. – not just one type of health.

They provide GIFs to go along with each exercise, making it super easy to follow along with.
7. Apps for Ab Exercises – 8Fit
8Fit is my all-time favorite app for any type of exercise – including core.
What I love about 8Fit is that you can input what your exact fitness goals are, as well as where you are currently at physically – and develop a customized program to fit your needs.
You can start slowly and work your way up to an intensity level you are comfortable with, or you can start at a high intensity – up to you.
The exercises include a personal trainer that shows you how to complete each work out – and a countdown timer that alerts you when you are almost complete with one round or one set.
8. YouTube Video for Core Exercises – Fitness Blender
I recently discovered Fitness Blender and absolutely love them. They are a husband-wife team that brings you simple workouts you can do practically anywhere.
I love their videos because they are short, simple, and get straight to the point.
Their 10 Minute Ab Workout video is awesome! It has over 71,000,000 views on YouTube so that should tell you something!
9. Planners for Fitness – The Busy Woman’s Planner
If you are just starting with your new fitness plan, or even if you are well into it, a planner is something that will probably help you.
Included in my TBWP’s Planner are fitness goals and planners just for your exercise needs. You will absolutely love this.
There is also, of course, an entire planner to go with – including daily, monthly, and weekly plans, meal plans, goals, and more.
Well friends, that about sums it up for today’s post on the ultimate resource list of ab exercises for beginners.
I included a wide range of resources for you because I know everyone is different. So I hope – whether it was a website, a magazine, an app, or a video – that something in here will help motivate you to get started with simple core exercises to strengthen your abs!
