1.) Start in the same position as the sit-up; knees bent, abdominals drawn towards your spine to reduce the space between your lower back and the floor. Breathe normally.


2.) Curl up until your shoulders are off the floor, and clasp your hands together.


3.) Crunch up and twist to the left, bringing your hands to the left of your legs and towards the floor. Concentrate on the contraction on your right side, and hold this position for one second before lowering.

 


4.) Repeat to the right
