I lead a busy life. Despite the fact that I spend a good chunk of my time in the gym when preparing for photo shoots, I can't live in the weight room 24/7. Just like you, I have other things to do, people to see, and a social life to fully enjoy. That's why I'm sharing this time-saving, highly effective ab circuit. You'll likely be done in 15-20 minutes, but it'll give you the sensation of a killer workout when you finish!
In fact, this training session is so effective that I often begin my daily workout with it, or some similar variation. The circuit consists of only four exercises, but before you begin, I recommend you gather all of the equipment you'll need—such as a stability ball and ab roller—so you're ready to hit each movement in quick succession, without rest.

HANGING LEG RAISE
This is a tough lower-ab exercise. You'll feel what I mean soon! Find a bar to hang from, and while keeping your upper body stable, bring your legs up so they end up above parallel to the ground. Since you'll be hanging, all of your core stabilizer muscles will fire to keep you from swaying too much. Keep your elbows unlocked and engage your core to also keep yourself steady.
