WALL CRUNCH INSTRUCTIONS
1. Lie on your back with your glutes as close to the wall as comfortable, place your hands behind your head and extend your legs up the wall.
2. Lift your shoulders, squeeze your abs and hold for 1 to 2 seconds.
3. Slowly return to the starting position and repeat.
PROPER FORM AND BREATHING PATTERN
Relax your shoulders, neck and head, open your elbows and keep the chin off your chest. Breathe out as you squeeze the abs and crunch, and keep looking up. Inhale as you return to the starting position.
The wall crunch strengthens, sculpts and tones your abs, and slims down your waist. This exercise targets the abdominal wall and is a great alternative to regular crunches.
