Crunch on Exercise Ball
Equipment Required: Exercise Ball

- Lower your torso and stretch out, keeping your neck stationary at all times. This is the starting position.
- With your hips stationary, contract your abs to flex your waist. Curl your shoulders and trunk up until you feel a contraction in your abs. Your arms should slide up the side of your legs or stay on top of your chest if you chose to cross them. Your lower back should be in contact with the ball at all times. Exhale as you perform this movement and hold the contraction for a second.
- Inhale, and move back to the starting position.
- Repeat for the desired number of reps.
