Crunches with a Leg RaiseStarting Position: Begin by lying on your back with your arms stretched over head and 1 leg straight.
Form: Exhale and as you bring your leg to 90 degrees crunch forward with your upper body in an attempt to touch your toes. Hold briefly at the top and slowly lower to the starting position.
Personal Trainer Tips: Repeat for 8-15 repetitions on each leg.
If your neck gets fatigued, gently support your neck with the opposite hand from the straight leg and just reach with 1 arm. (i.e. touch your right foot with your right hand)
