HOW TO: Bicycle Crunches
While many people associate MIND BODY classes like yoga with active recovery or relaxation - but not all are created equal. If you're looking for a session that focuses more on results, then head to a Pilates or Bootybarre class at Goodlife and you’ll soon be air-pedalling your way to washboard abs with back-to-back Bicycle Crunches.
Bicycle Crunches work the abs - upper and lower - as well as the hips, quads and hamstrings, making it an ideal full-body move focused on building core strength. Take it to the next level by wearing ankle weights, holding a weight plate or dumbbell above your head or on your chest. Start scrolling and get crunching!
1. Lie flat on the floor, hands lightly behind your head.
2. Lift shoulder blades off the ground and bring your knees to your chest at a 90-degree angle.
3. Straighten left leg out, turn your body slightly bringing your left elbow towards your bent right leg. Alternate sides.
