Exercise Instructions:

  1. Lie flat on the ground, then bring your legs up to a vertical position.
  2. Keep a slight bend at the knees if this is more comfortable for you.
  3. Extend your arms above your chest and shoulders.
  4. Crunch up by squeezing your abs HARD, reaching with your hands as if trying to touch your toes, or at least tap your shins, depending upon your flexibility.
  5. When performing any type of crunch variation, I like to start breathing out BEFORE the rep begins. This ensures you’ll achieve a far greater abs contraction when you reach the end of the rep.
