Bicycle enthusiasts are sure to love today’s exercise! Even non-cyclists will enjoy the easy, rhythmic motion of this bicycle crunch.

Get ready to break a sweat!
Step 1: Lie flat on your back. Place your hands behind your head and raise your heels about 2 inches from the ground, keeping your chin up and abs tight throughout the exercise.
Step 2: Bring your right elbow to your left knee and breathe slowly as you rotate to the other side or a count of 10 seconds.
Step 3: Hold and squeeze for 2 seconds at the maximum tension point (where your left elbow meets your right knee).
Step 4: Lower your body to the starting point through a count of 10 seconds.
Step 5: Repeat three times without resting, alternating sides, for a total of 2 reps per side.
