2. Reverse Crunches
Start in a crunch position. Press your lower back into the ground and pull your belly button to lift the feet off the ground. Your knees should be together and bent at 90- degree angles. Pull the knees to your chest so that your tailbone raises off the floor and simultaneously perform a traditional crunch, lifting your shoulder blades off the floor. After that, bring your body back to the starting position. Do this ten times. (2)
