The Bicycle Crunch is a great exercise to help make some of the Dad duties (like picking up your kids and putting them in the car) a little easier and even help you look better on the beach.
One of the great things about this exercise is that it works your entire abdominal region (lower, mid and upper abs) and you can do it anywhere. No equipment needed.
Here is a demo:
How many sets?
Go for one to five.
How many reps?
As many as you can do without sacrificing good form.
Always Use Good Form
- Put your hands on the sides of your head. Picture yourself holding big headphones on your ears.
- Keep your elbows straight out to the sides.
- Pull yourself up and twist using your abs, not your hands.
- Be careful not to pull your head up with your hands-you could hurt your neck doing that.
