Exercise of the Week: The Crunch

by | Jul 24, 2014 | Activity, Weekly Fitness Challenge

Tested and true, crunches are a great exercise to build core strength. Easy to do wherever you are, with no equipment required, there’s no excuse not to sneak in a few minutes of these in a day. Start with 1 set of 10 reps, and build up to 3 sets of 10 reps per day. For an extra challenge raise your feet off the floor and keep them suspended in the air during the crunch. Exercise - Crunch   Instructions: Lie on your back Bend your knees to 90 degrees Place hands behind neck but don’t press on your neck Contract your abs bringing your midsection to your knees Hold for a second Ease back down slowly
