This is another oldie, but a goodie! This is a great variation to the standard crunch by making it slightly more challenging. It also focuses directly on each side of your core. We’re almost half way through this challenge and everyone is doing so great and hanging in there. It’s tough but just remember: if your body isn’t challenged, it won’t change. Also remember you can use these moves even after this challenge is over to up the ante with your workouts. So, let’s get to it!
Long Lever Crunch: Begin this move on the floor, with one leg extended outward, the other leg bent. If your right leg is extended out first, 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 by 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. Come back down and repeat step 1, but be sure not to drop your foot down on the floor. This will keep your abdominals engaged in the exercise. Try 20 on each side! You can do it!
Don’t give up y’all, let’s keep going.
