The Bicycle Crunch:
The next one is an all-time classic the bicycle crunch. This one is a fan favorite especially in those cold winter months when you can’t ride a bicycle and crave that cyclical motion. This workout routine can be done anywhere at home and requires no equipment except a nice playlist to jam to.
Step 1: Lie flat on your lower back pressed to the ground
Step 2: Bring your knees towards your chest and lift your shoulder blades off the ground
Step 3: Straighten your right leg, hovering it off the ground, while turning your upper body to the left, bringing your right elbow toward your left knee
Step 4: Make sure it’s your rib cage moving, and not just your elbows
Step 5: Switch sides extending the left leg, and drawing the left knee in.
