While keeping your legs straight, lift your feet about 6 inches off the floor. For stability place your hands on the floor.

hile balancing on your butt, pull both feet in, away from the door while you simultaneously raise your shoulders off the floor.

Try not to round your back as your raise your upper body. At the top of the movement your back should be straight and chest up.

Easy crunch

Easy Crunch

When we describe how to do a crunch, the hands can be behind or beside the neck or crossed over the chest.

For beginners, I recommend place them on the thighs. Obviously, lie on your back with bent knees :)

Exhale and contract your abdominal muscles, approaching your breastbone to your pelvis.

Reach your knees with your fingers. Inhale and come back to starting position.

Abdominal Toe Touchers

Abdominal Toe Touchers

With this exercise, we will work our abdominal muscles. Probably one of the most hated but effective exercise. It needs no introduction because you can have second thoughts so, let´s go for it:

Lie on your back and lift your legs straight up into the air. Extend your arms. This will make your body form an “L”. Inhale and make sure you keep your lower back pressed flat on the ground.

Exhale and crunch, touching your toes with your fingers.
