Lie flat on your back on a mat and raise both legs straight up toward the ceiling.
- Lower your left leg
With a slow and controlled motion, lower your left leg until it is around 6 inches above the floor.
- Do a crunch
Contract your abdominal muscles to perform a crunch toward your raised leg.
- Switch legs
Raise your left leg while lowering your right leg until it is around 6 inches above the floor. Crunch toward your raised leg. Repeat for 10 repetitions.
