Get Bikini Ready! Exercise #2

Time for workout #2! For abs of steel consider trying out the vertical leg crunch.  It’s similar to a regular crunch except that your legs are straight up! This forces you to use your abs muscles to do all the work making it a little more challenging. Heres how to do it:

vertical-leg-crunch1. Lie on your back on the floor and slowly extend your legs straight up in the air. Keep your knees together while doing so to help with stability.

2. Place your hands behind your head (to help with support which performing crunches). Avoid pulling on the neck.

3. Lift your shoulder blades off the floor, bringing your chest towards your feet. Essentially you are “crunching” your ab muscles as you do so. Lower when completed and repeat for three sets of twelve to sixteen reps.

4. Try to keep your legs in a fixed position as you are doing this. This again adds to the challenge.
