Anyone still do crunches? Gave up on those years ago, they don’t work and terrible for your spine. Try exercise number two, it’s a modified version of the crunch, more effective and better for the back.
1. Single leg lowering with band - on this make sure your lower back is pushed down on the mat. Starting with the left leg up with band looped around foot, take a deep breath in, as you exhale lower the leg, driving the heel away from you. Repeat on other leg.
2. Modified crunch - lay down hands supporting the lower back, bend one leg so the foot is inline with other knee. Brace the abs, lift the upper body and lift the extended leg, exhale and lower leg.
3. Leg lifts with mini band
4. Curl ups with mini band around ankles - push against the band as you role the hips up.
