Reverse Crunches:

  • Lie down on the floor with your legs fully extended and arms to the side of your torso with the palms on the floor. Your arms should be stationary for the entire exercise.
  • Move your legs up so that your thighs are perpendicular to the floor and feet are together and parallel to the floor. This is the starting position.
  • While inhaling, move your legs towards the torso as you roll your pelvis backwards and you raise your hips off the floor. At the end of this movement your knees will be touching your chest.
  • Hold the contraction for a second and move your legs back to the starting position while exhaling.
  • Repeat for the recommended amount of repetitions.

Crunches:

  • Lie on your back with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor, hip-width apart.
  • Place your hands behind your head so your thumbs are behind your ears.
  • Don’t lace your fingers together.
  • Hold your elbows out to the sides but rounded slightly in.
  • Tilt your chin slightly, leaving a few inches of space between your chin and your chest.
  • Gently pull your abdominal inward.
  • Curl up and forward so that your head, neck, and shoulder blades lift off the floor.
  • Hold for a moment at the top of the movement and then lower slowly back down.

Heel Touches:

  • Lay down with your back on the ground and your knees bent and pointed towards the ceiling.
  • With your arms on your side raise your shoulders slightly off the ground.
  • Using your abs rotate your right hand down to your right foot and then back up.
  • Then do the same thing with your left hand.
  • Alternate back and forth for the desired amount of repetitions.

Windshield Wipers:

  • Begin on your back with knees bent, feet flat on floor and arms stretched out to the sides.
  • Gently lower your knees to the left side of your body and place on the floor. Gaze right and breathe.
  • Engage your abdominals and slowly pull your knees back to the start position.
  • Gently lower your knees to the right side of your body and place on the floor. Gaze left and breathe.
  • Repeat a few more times as desired or needed.
