Lying Straight Arm (Weighted) Crunch

1. Lie on your back, knees bent at 90 degree angles, feet flat on floor.

2. Hold a light dumbbell in your right hand (use an even lighter weight, or no weight, if it’s too much), and have your upper right arm perpendicular to body, as if you’re about to do a one armed chest press.

3. Crunch forward, bringing the weight in your right hand and your entire right arm and shoulder straight up.

4. Exhale out on the move up, inhale on your belly on the way down.

5. Return to the start position and repeat.

6. Switch sides and complete the exercise with the weight in your left hand.
