Boat-Crunch

Move Targets: Core


Step-by-Step

Step 1: Sit at the bottom of the slide, grabbing the edges with your hands for support. Lean back enough so you feel your core tense up, then pull the belly button into the spine, creating a scoop in the lower abs. Bend the knees and extend the shins out into a tabletop. Open the chest.

Step 2: Open up into a "V" position by leaning back more and straightening the legs. Modification: Pump the legs in and out if a full extension is not possible at this time.

Step 3:  Keep the chest lifted and open when you crunch back to your starting position. The knees should never pass the hips, moving toward the chest.
