Ab "V-up"

If you’re bored with doing the same old crunches time after time (who wouldn’t be?), try this move to shake things up – or should I say “crunch” things up?!

Muscles worked: Abdominals
Time to complete: 5-7 minutes
You will need: A mat

  1. Start by lying on your back on the mat, both legs and arms extended (arms overhead).
  2. Raise your arms and legs so they are just above the floor (abs engaged, and your lower back touching the floor) – this is your starting position.
  3. Keeping your abs tight, raise your legs and arms toward eachother, until your body is in the shape of a “V” – hold one second and return to the starting position (arms and legs hovering over floor, lower back touching the floor).
  4. Repeat 20 reps for a full set, rest 30 seconds then repeat 2 more sets (3 total).
  5. Form Tip: Keep your neck in line with your spine, don’t overextend by pulling too far forward.
