1) 30 crunches – Take a break every 10 crunches if you need to. Remember to support your neck with your hands.
|Crunch – start position|
|Support your neck as you raise your upper body|
2) 30 hip raises – These are strengthening and will also stretch out the muscles you worked when crunching.
|Hip Raise – start position|
|Lift and squeeze|
3) 30 lying leg raises (how to:http://www.muscleandfitness.com/workouts/abs-exercises/tone-your-abs-lying-leg-raise) – love them or hate them, they are effective!
|Raise your legs and bottom, tuck hands below your hips for support|
|Lower your legs slowly keeping ankles flexed|
|Take a moment and repeat|
How did you do? Were you able to do 30 of each exercise? Check in with me. I love comments on the blog, Twitter (@playoutsidegal), and Facebook (www.facebook.com/PlayOutsideGuide).
