Crab Twist

Move Targets: Total body


Step 1: Sit on floor with knees bent in front of you, feet hip-width apart on the floor. Place hands shoulder-width apart on floor behind you. Lift your butt so that your body is in reverse tabletop position. Extend your right leg and place your left hand behind your head, elbow out.


Step 2: Crunch diagonally, bringing your right knee to your left elbow. That’s one rep. Repeat for allotted amount of reps, then switch to the other side.


Modification (beginner): When in reverse tabletop position, keep both hands on the floor behind you and raise your knee to your chest.
