EXERCISE OF THE DAY

Bicycle crunches

The bicycle crunch is one of the best exercises you can do for your core. The reason is, that unlike a straightforward crunch, the bicycle crunch movement uses more muscles, hitting the upper and lower abs as well as the obliques, all in one single exercise. Make it part of your daily work out!

Starting Position: Lie on your back with your head and neck relaxed and arms by your side. Bend your knees and lift your legs into the air. Pull knees toward your chest and lengthen your right leg. This is your starting position.

Execution: Pulling your belly button toward the floor, lift your left leg up toward your chest and lengthen your right leg. Switch sides by pulling your right leg toward your chest and lengthening your left leg. Breathe in and out throughout the movement. Continue with a ‘riding’ type motion alternating legs.

ACTIVITY OF THE DAY

Involve the kids in your workout!
