5 Different Crunches for Toned Abs

Hey hey! Finally getting to writing some more blog posts and this is one I've been thinking about for a while now.

Since I've been working out every day again, I've learned so many new exercises that I just had to show you!!

Everyone get's bored with the same old crunches all the time. I wanted to give you some more options to workout more muscles and to change it up a bit.

Here are 5 different crunches you can do anytime, anywhere, with NO equipment.

1. Starfish

Start out laying flat on the ground with your arms and feet sprawled out like a starfish. Then bring your upper back and one leg off the ground and touch your opposite hand to opposite foot. You're reaching for that foot, coming back down and switching sides.

2. Bicycle

Lying on your back with your hands behind your head in a crunch position, bring an elbow to the opposite leg. Switch to the other side and repeat. Be sure you're getting your shoulders off the ground and you're twisting your abdomen to work those core muscles. Keep your feet flat to help engage your core.

3. Toe Tap

The objective of this crunch is to get a pulse going. You want your legs up straight and to get your shoulders off of the ground and reach for your toes. Lower back down slightly and reach again. A bunch of little reaches. This will burnnnn.

4. Elbow to Knee

Start like you would a normal crunch. Back on the ground, knees bent, hands behind the head. Bring your knees to meet your elbows and your elbows to meet your knees. It looks like you're a little ball. Then bring both back down and crunch again.

5. Oblique Crunch

Lay on your side. Tilt slightly back so that you're resting on one butt cheek. Put the arm that is under you out in front of you to use as support. The other arm will be behind your head. Crunch to meet your arm with your knees. This is a side crunch that will work your obliques. After you've done as many as you want on one side, switch to the other side and do the same movement.

Hope this was easy enough to follow along! I tried to explain it and also give a visual... (lol) Also, hope your abs are burninnnn after this!

Thanks for readin!
