Crunch

1. Start position: Lie back onto floor or bench with knees bent and hands behind head. Keep elbows back and out of sight. Head should be in a neutral position with a space between chin and chest.
2. Leading with the chin and chest towards the ceiling, contract the abdominal and raise shoulders off floor or bench.
3. Return to start position.

Remember to keep head and back in a neutral position. Hyperextension or flexion of either may cause injury.

This is another core hit....folow along as the figure in the picture...try not to jerk the neck pulling directly from your core(keep it contracted)...

Superman

2) Raise chest and head off floor keeping feet in contact with floor.
3) Return to start position.
4) To increase resistance, extend arms and place hands overhead.
5) Do not raise head past 8-12 inches - excessive hyperextension may cause injury. To vary exercise raise feet while raising trunk.

Straight Arm Modified Crunch

Hopefully you are not tired yet more ab work comin at ya....

Plank

1. Start by placing your forearms on the ground and forming a plank with your forearms and feet.

This one is pretty tough...you may try strait legs or on your knees...a regressive approach...email if you are still not sure how to do it...

Lying Side Crunch
