#3 Bicycle Crunch
The bicycle crunch is an advanced variation of the regular crunch, which activates the entire core with an added focus on the obliques.
Step 1: Lie on the floor in a supine position and place your feet close to each other. Position your arms behind the head without interlocking the fingers.
Step 2: Bring your left knee towards the chest while simultaneously twisting your torso to the right. Ensure that the elbow and the knee make contact above the abdomen.
Step 3: Pause for a second and return to the initial position. Repeat the same motion on the other side to complete one rep.
Perform the exercise for the recommended number of times.
Important tip: People with lower back problems must exercise caution while performing this exercise.
