Cycle crunch

Starting Position:

Lie flat on your back on the floor/mat in a bent-knee position with feet placed firmly on the floor and your hands behind your head. Engage your ab muscles to stabilise your spine.

Place your shoulder blades back and down. Slowly lift both feet off the floor until your thighs are vertically to the floor (90-degree angle at the hips) and your knees are at a 90-degree bend. Toes pointing away from your body.

Bring one knee up to meet the opposite elbow and rotate your torso and swap legs. Ensure you press your low back into the floor/mat.
