Abdominal Crunch with Exercise Band & Exercise Ball

Description:

A very effective exercise to strengthen abdominal muscles.

Bring your elbows in to your sides, then lift your shoulders and head slightly off the mat. Hold for a few seconds, then lower. Make sure you don't hold your breath. Do 10 - 12 repetitions of the exercise. Rest briefly. Repeat for 1 or 2 more sets.
