Featuring Jackson Sayers, B.Sc. (Kinesiology)

Duration: 49 seconds    

A very effective upper body crunch that involves a bit of a lateral motion in it, simply involves around putting your hands behind your head.

The key of this motion is that we do not put too much strain on our neck, so our hands are very loose. What we want to do is get that nice bent position with the leg, other foot up on the knee, pelvis nice and square and we come over, touch the knee and go back again.

Come over, touch the knee and go back again. It does not really matter if you cannot get all the way; you just want to be crossing the stomach over and coming back down again. We do not want to be putting any kind of pressure on our head.

Repetitions involve anywhere between eight and twelve, back forward again.
