We’re almost done and “12 Days of Amazing Moves” has been a great success so far! There have been a few bumps in the road as far as getting the posts up on time, pics being accidentally deleted, etc. But whatever we start, we should ALWAYS finish. Right? So I’m going to finish this ’til the end!
*Remember*: Any of these 12 moves can be added into your daily routine for extra work on toning and shaping, OR you can put all these moves together in a circuit, adding a cardio blast between each rotation. Challenge yourself to try something new and different!
Long Lever Crunch
Materials Needed: Nothing!
Muscles Targeted: Core (abdominals)
Begin this move on the floor, with one leg extended outward, the other leg bent. If your right leg is extended out, extend your right arm out beside your head, with your elbow straight. Keep your foot lifted off the floor to begin the move.
Crunch up, bringing your extended leg up and lifting your shoulders off the floor. Keep your arm near your ear and your other arm supporting the back of your head so that you don’t strain your neck. Do 10 reps, then switch legs and your extended arm.
Come back down and repeat step 1, but be sure not to drop your foot down. This will keep your abdominals engaged in the exercise.
One more day and we’re done! Let me know what you think about all of the moves that have been posted. Have they been helpful? Challenging?
