1. BICYCLE CRUNCHES
With a flat back, pull your naval towards the floor. With your hands behind your head to guide you, bring knees toward elbows and alternate sides. As you twist back and forth, be sure not to pull on your neck. Be sure to twist from the core, not simply feeling the movement in your elbows. 10 to each side (20 total), repeat the workout 3 times through.
2. ELBOW TO KNEE CRUNCHES
With a flat back, place your hands behind your head. Do not strain your neck by pulling. Bring knees toward your chest and raise your shoulder blades off the ground. Feel the crunch within your abdominals. Bring knees back to a 90-degree angle with the floor and repeat. Complete the movement 20 times, repeat the workout 3 times through.
3. LEG RAISE WITH TRUNK LIFT
With a flat back to the ground, legs out-stretched. Place hands beside you. While keeping legs straight, bring them to a 90-degree angle. For added strength building, lift your lower half off the ground, pushing your legs toward the ceiling. Pulse this position for added calorie burning. Complete the movement 20 times, repeat the workout 3 times through.
