Bicycle Crunches


Lay on the back with the head supported by the hands. Do not lace the fingers. Pull the knees in toward the chest and then extend one leg. The movement of the legs would be as if you were riding an imaginary bicycle. Crunch up as if you were touching one elbow to the opposite knee. Switch to the other elbow to opposite knee. Repeat.

Works the rectus abdominus, internal and external obliques, and transverse abdominus.
