Diamond Crunch

  1. Lie on the floor or on the stretching mat. Pull your legs forward.
  2. Bend your knees and lower external parts of the hips toward the floor. Soles of your feet should face each other.
  3. Now, pull your feet to yourself as close as possible. The legs should form a diamond shape.
  4. At this point, cross your hands putting them on the shoulders. This will be your starting position.
  5. Pressing the lower back to the floor, exhale and start crunching. The movement should look like an incomplete standard lifting of the torso. Hold in this position.
  6. Inhaling, slowly return to starting position.
  7. Repeat for the required amount of repetitions.
