Fitness Tip

Today is Fitness Tip day

Did you know that the Bicycle crunch is the best ab exercise?
A study done by San Diego State University found that the Bicycle crunch was the best exercise for the rectus abdominus. The study measured the amount of muscle stimulation caused by the exercise.
To perform the Bicycle crunch:
  • Lie flat on the floor with your lower back pressed to the ground and contract your core muscles.
  • Place your hands behind your head and lift your knees to about a 45-degree angle.
  • Begin to move your feet out and in, in a pedaling motion.
  • As you move you pedal your legs, touch the opposite elbow to the knee that is in. Then bring the other leg in and touch the opposite elbow to that knee.
  • Repeat for the desired amount of repetitions.
