Exhale as you contract, and keep your feet together throughout the move. Release back down with control. That’s one rep. Immediately contract back up, and complete the recommended number of reps for each set. Perform for 1 minute without stopping

Toe Touches

Lie on your back on an exercise mat on the floor with your legs touching and fully extended and your arms extended outward with palms down. With your knees slightly bent, raise your legs straight up in the air until your feet are parallel with the floor. Reach your arms toward your feet, forming a 45 degree angle. Your head should still be on the floor. This is your starting position. Roll forward as you exhale, lifting your torso off the floor as you try to touch your toes with your fingers. Inhale as you slowly reverse the motion back to the starting position.Perform for 1 minute without stopping

CRUNCHES
