- Vertical Leg Crunch:
How To Do
Lie flat on the floor, or on the mat, with your legs extended upwards (towards the ceiling) and one knee crossed over the other.
Now that you have positioned your body perfectly, do the same as you would have done in the case of crunches. That is, breathe in and lift your upper body from the floor towards the pelvis.
Breathe out slowly. As you bring yourself down, breathe in again, and exhale as you go up.
Do 12 to 15 reps and up to three sets.
Start by doing only a few repetitions of this exercise, as it can make you feel sore if you overdo it initially.
