1. Vertical Leg Crunch
This exercise is an extended form of crunch that is different from the common crunch that is targeted to reduce stomach fat. Lie on your back on a flat surface. You can use a yoga mat to cushion your body. Put your hands behind your head and place your elbows far out from your sight. Raise your legs and cross your ankles. Contract your stomach and raise your shoulders to an angle of about 30 degrees.
2. Hip Lift
Hip Lift is great for those who want to strengthen their abdominal muscles. Similar to the vertical leg crunch you would want to place a yoga mat underneath to support your spell. Placing your arms at your sides, raise your legs up in the air making an near 90 degrees angle with your abdomen. Contract your abdomen till you feel the pull in your stomach. Repeat the steps above and for sure there will be results in just 1 week
3. Long Arm Crunch
Long arm crunch extends the primitive crunches which may not be challenging to some individuals. Extend your arms behind you. Contract your abdomen and slowly lift your arms, head and shoulders to about 30 degrees. To see results perform 10 – 15 reps. The long arm crunch strengthens the abdominal part of your body.
