Trying to get your core back into shape after the holidays?
Try adding this exercise to your workout routine to develop a rock solid core!
(works rectus abdominis, obliques)
Lie on your back with your knees bent 90 degrees and your feet off the floor so your thighs are per-pendicular to the floor. Fold your hands across your chest. Slowly straighten your legs away from you and to the right. (They should end up at a 45-degree angle to the floor.) As you go, crunch your torso upward and to the left while extending your arms forward. Slowly lower yourself back to the starting position. Repeat the exercise in the other direction.
Watch Your Form: Spend at least 2 to 3 seconds going up and the same going down. Rushing can disrupt your balance and force you to stop.
