    Crunches
    Traditional yes, standard no. Here are 3 variations on a theme to tighten the spots you’ve been missing.

    Double Crunch
    Starting position:
    Lie on your back, with your hips and knees bent as shown and your feet off the floor. Rest your hands lightly on your chest. Position the ball between your knees.

  • The move:
    Exhale as you lift your shoulders off the floor and bring your knees toward your chest. Grab the ball with your hands and bring it to your chest as you inhale and 3 return your shoulders and legs to the starting position. Transfer the ball back to your legs on the next repetition, and keep alternating ball positions for the entire set.



    Hint:
    Keep your head in line with your torso throughout the movement. Perform this move as quickly as possible.
