    The traditional crunch, these crunches can be done anywhere and work your rectus abdominis, aka your six-pack muscles.

  • Cat Curl And Stretch

    This stretches your spine in both directions, arched and contracted, thus strengthens both sides of your body as well.

    One-arm Superman is a back exercise that strengthens each side of your back independently. It also strengthens your rear shoulders, glutes and hamstrings and stretches your lats.

  • Pizzaholders

    Balancing on your tailbone and lengthening the legs away from you then contracting to fetal position to strengthen your abdominals.
