1.) The Dumbbell Crunch
First things first grab a set of dumbbells. Now lie on your back with your dumbbells nearby. Next, you will need to bend your knees and place your heels a couple of inches from your bum. Now place a dumbbell in each hand.
Now bend your elbows and hold the dumbbells vertically, so the bottoms are on either side of your head. Activate your abs by drawing your navel toward your spine, and press your lower back into the floor.
When you're ready, keeping your belly pulled in, lift your upper body off the floor, so your shoulder blades are floating above the ground. At the same time you will want to lift your feet off the floor extending your hands as you crunch. Slowly lower back down, but don't let your shoulders, head or feet touch down.
Do a total of 20 to 25 Dumbbell Crunches, take a break, and do another set. Bonus: add ankle weights to crank up the burn!
2.) The V Crunch - is an excellent exercise for shrinking your waist and toning your abdominal muscles.
Start by laying on your back. Next lift your legs and arms up so they are extended toward the ceiling. Lift your upper back off the floor, reaching your hands toward your feet.
Slowly lower your legs toward the floor while reaching your arms overhead, keeping your shoulders off the mat and lower back pressed into the mat.
Do a total of 20 to 25 V-Crunches, take a break, and do another set.
3.) The Starfish Crunch - targets your entire core abdominals area and requires no equipment to perform.
Lay flat on your back. Extend your arms over your head and spread your legs out so that your body forms an "X" on the ground.
Simultaneously lift one arm and the opposing leg, reaching across and touching your fingers to your ankle. Exhale during the crunch. Keep the arm and leg not being used on the ground.
Inhale and slowly lower back to staring position. Repeat the motion using the opposite arm and leg.
Do a total of 20 to 25 Starfish-Crunches, take a break, and do another set.
