I do this in almost all of my core classes, non-stop abs. 🙂
So what you are going to do is each of the following moves 10-12 times (or each side) without stopping or taking a break. Give it a try and let me know what you think!
STRONG CORES UNITE! 🙂
Hands gently behind your head, look up at the ceiling, contract your core, and begin.
Release hands from behind head, keep arms straight, and reach from heal to heal.
Single Leg Pilates Crunch
Keep one leg planted and straighten the other. Crunch up to one leg and then the other.
(Make sure to do both legs!)
Basic Crunch #2
90 Degree Leg Crunch
Keep legs bent and in the air (supposed to be 90 degrees but math and I don’t get along :p)
Keep on crunching!
Double Leg Floor Toe Taps
Place your hands to the side of your body on your mat (or under your glutes). Keep your knees bent, bring your legs up to the ceiling and tap down gently to the floor.
Straight Leg Crunch
Place your hands back behind your head, raise your legs so your feet are parallel with the ceiling, and crunch!
Straight Leg Pulse
Remove your hands from the back of your head and reach up to your toes. This is a little contraction. Keep your shoulders off the ground.
Basic Crunch #3
Legs flat on the ground (like corpse pose in yoga) and crunch!
Crossed Leg Crunch
(Criss-Cross Apple Sauce :p)
Bring your legs into indian style and crunch.
Crossed Leg Pulse
Same idea as the straight leg pulse, but with the crossed leg crunch. Tiny movement. Contract your core.
Basic Crunch #4
Give yourself a good stretch, you deserve it 🙂
