The Queensland-born blonde does six exercises with 50 seconds of hard work ‘on’ and 10 seconds per minute marked as ‘rest’ during the mini workout.

‘I literally do this in every session I have. It’s either a finisher or I use it as a starter before I get into weights, either way you can do it whenever and wherever,’ she said.

To start with she twists her arms straight above her head and does Straight Arm crunches, working on keeping her lower back flat and moving from the top – or thoracic – part of her spine.

Next is a Leg Lift with Extension, which involves keeping both legs straight and lifting them up past your hips before flattening them against the floor. 

It targets the lower abdominals and gives your spine a stretch as you roll backward.

The third exercise is Single Leg Lifts, placing each straight leg down to the floor before bringing it back up in line with your hips.

Morgan’s chest is lifted to strengthen her neck and help work her core at the same time as her legs are moving.

‘It as easy as that, although that wasn’t that easy,’ she said at the end of the footage.

‘I’ve been doing this workout for about three weeks 3-4 times in a week and I’ve seen great results! If anyone is looking for the comment it works,’ one fan said.

‘The reason why I love this ab workout compared to others out there is because you have almost a minute per exercise, which is enough time to fire up those muscles,’ said another.

A third added: ‘I’M OBSESSED WITH THIS. I can actually feel this one working’.
