  • Halle Berry shared a series of Instagram stories working out with her trainer, Peter Lee Thomas.
  • In the videos, she and her trainer demonstrate a five-move ab workout using only a towel.
  • She said "this quick workout... ignites your whole core no matter where you are."

Halle Berry's bod is next level. But tbh, usually her workouts look way too complicated to try at home (hi, once she actually flipped tires to break a sweat).

However, the star recently shared a quick ab workout with no fancy equipment required. All you need is a towel. Yes, a towel.

In her latest Fitness Friday video on Instagram, Halle and her trainer Peter Lee Thomas demo her five go-to exercises for abs. Each move incorporates the "seasonal essential - that imma pray you all have 😂 - a TOWEL."

Halle adds, "This quick workout isolates various muscles in your abdomen to ignite your whole core no matter where you are."

Without further ado, grab your towel and follow along with Halle's abs workout:

1. Straight Arm Towel Sit-Up (10-20 reps)

How to do it: Sit on the floor with knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Grab the towel and hold it tight with arms outstretched in front of you. Slowly roll back until your back is flat on the floor and arms are straight above shoulders. Then, return to sitting position as you lift arms above shoulders at a diagonal. That's one rep.

2. Straight Arm Slow Russian Twist (10-20 reps)

How to do it: Sit on the floor with knees bent and feet crossed and lifted off the floor. Grab the towel with arms straight and hold it tight. Slowly dip arms to the left (keeping them straight) until the left hand touches the floor. Then, dip arms to the right until the right hand touches the floor. Keep everything else still throughout the move. That's one rep.

3. Squat, Press, Jump, Burpee (10-20 reps)

How to do it: Start standing with feet at hip distance, hold towel tight behind you at shoulders. Squat down, then, press towel up over your head, swing it down and jump over it (like a jump rope). Drop the towel and complete one burpee. That's one rep.

4. Overhead Towel Bulgarian Back Lunge & Side Knee (10-20 reps)

How to do it: Grab the towel and hold tight with arms straight over head. Step right leg back into lunge. Then, lift right leg with knee bent in front of you and bring towel down to touch your knee before returning to start. Complete with left leg. That's one rep.

5. Mega Plyo Skaters (10-20 Reps)

How to do it: Place the towel on the floor to create a straight line, ensuring there's enough space in the room on both sides to jump. Hop over the towel to your left side as you cross your right leg behind your left leg and bend your left knee into a half-squat position. (As you do this, extend your left arm out to the side, and swing your right arm across your hips.) Then, hop over the towel to the right, switching the position of your legs and arms. That's one rep.

Who knew Halle Berry's super-toned abs are all thanks to a towel? Well, now you do.
