Movement Execution:

Explanation: To perform this exercise, it is preferable that you lie down on the ground. Place your hands at your sides and under your buttocks if you are a beginner to make the exercise easier. Begin with your legs out straight in front of you, slightly above the ground. Next, keeping your legs straight, raise them to point directly up, or as much as you can. Contract you abdominals at this point. Lower your legs back to the starting position, but not touching the ground.

Helpfull Hint:

As with all abdominal exercises, it is very important that you use strict and proper form to achieve results. There are many variations of crunches, all targeting different areas of your abdominals. This exercise is not for the beginner. It is a little tricky to gain your balance, but when you do so this exercise will do you wonders. Remember with all abdominal exercises that breathing in as you relax and out as you contract is also very important! Train hard!

Current: 50 repetitions
