Exercise four: Two up two down crunch

This works the upper abdominals.

How to

- Lie on your back with your knees bent and your feet on the floor.
- Place your fingertips on your earlobes and have your elbows wide so they are touching the floor.
- Keep your gaze up and behind you to avoid pulling with your neck.
- The crunch is meant to be gradual, taking two beats to raise your shoulder blades off the ground and two beats to lower back to the start position. 
- Your elbows should touch the floor with each repetition.
