Video: Lunch Crunchadmin
Have your next picnic lunch with a side of crunch!
Try our challenging Lunch Crunches:
Sit on the edge of the bench. Slowly lean back onto your “sits bones”, (the boney part of your rear end), while lifting your feet. Place your hands behind your head with your elbows out to the sides. Engage your abs and find your balance before beginning this exercise.
Bring your knees in toward your chest, then extend back out to the starting position. (See video.) Concentrate on using your abdominal muscles as you bring your legs into your chest. Keep your head up, elbows out, and don’t pull down on your neck as you crunch.
Note from Jenny: While this do-anywhere exercise is very convenient, it’s not as easy as it looks – but the results are worth the practice! Take your time and take care to keep your balance so as to not put added pressure on your back. Work your way up to 2 sets of 12.
This exercise can be done on a picnic table, park bench, or on a sturdy coffee table in your home.
