Twist Crunches Exercises
Crunch Away The Love Handles
Twisting crunches strengthen and work all 3 of the muscles that make up your waist. This can really give definition to your waist when done properly. It's not how many you do but the quality of the workout.
Begin by lying on your back with your knees bent and your hands placed behind your head. Curl forward by contracting your stomach muscles - not pulling your head! At the same time twist to bring your right elbow to your left knee. Immediately repeat twisting to the opposite side. Repeat at least 10 times trying to work up to about 20 a workout.
You may keep your knees slightly bent with your feet resting on the floor or you can have your legs straight out for added intensity. You can even get off the floor and use an exercise ball to do crunches.
