Crunches With Leg Lift

  • Sit on the ball, walk forward until your back is laying on the ball, then place your hands behind your head.

  • Lift your head off the ball as you lift one knee towards the same shoulder. Pause, then lower your foot to the floor and your head to the ball.

  • Stability ball

  • Abdominals 

  • Rectus abdominis

  • TIP: Keep your chin a fist's distance away from your chest as you lift your head. Stabilize yourself by using your abdominals, constantly pulling your abs into your back for support.
