Sure, I can provide you with a sample seated ab workout that you can complete in about 10 minutes. Please note that it's important to consult a fitness professional or medical expert before starting any new exercise routine, especially if you have any pre-existing medical conditions or concerns. Here's a simple seated ab workout to get you started:

Seated Ab Workout (10 minutes)

Warm-up (2 minutes): Perform light seated twists and torso rotations to warm up your core muscles.

Exercise 1: Seated Russian Twists (2 minutes):

  1. Sit on the floor with your knees bent and your feet flat.
  2. Lean back slightly while keeping your back straight and core engaged.
  3. Hold your hands together in front of you, and twist your torso to the right, bringing your hands beside your hip.
  4. Return to the center and then twist to the left.
  5. Continue alternating sides in a controlled manner.

Exercise 2: Seated Leg Lifts (2 minutes):

  1. Sit on the edge of a chair with your hands gripping the sides for support.
  2. Keep your back straight and engage your core.
  3. Lift your legs off the ground, keeping them straight and extended.
  4. Hold for a few seconds, then lower your legs back down without letting your feet touch the ground.
  5. Repeat the leg lifts for the designated time.

Exercise 3: Seated Bicycle Crunches (2 minutes):

  1. Sit on the chair with your hands behind your head, elbows out.
  2. Lift your feet off the ground slightly, so your shins are parallel to the floor.
  3. Bring your right elbow and left knee towards each other while simultaneously straightening your right leg.
  4. Alternate by bringing your left elbow and right knee towards each other while straightening your left leg.
  5. Continue this bicycle motion, focusing on twisting your torso and engaging your core.

Cool Down (2 minutes): Stretch your core muscles by gently reaching your arms overhead and leaning to each side. Perform slow and controlled breathing to help your heart rate and breathing return to normal.

Remember to maintain proper form throughout each exercise to prevent strain or injury. As you progress, you can increase the intensity, repetitions, or add resistance to the exercises. Always listen to your body and adjust the workout according to your fitness level.
