On the eight day of Christmas...

On the eight day of Christmas my true love gave to me....Long Arm Crunch!

 Why it rocks: Its better then your traditional crunch because it increases difficulty and also reduces the strain in your neck. This move also emphasizes the upper part of the abs.

 How to do it:

1. Lie on a mat and extend the arms straight out behind the head with hands clasped, keeping the arms next to the ears.
2. Contract the abs and lift the shoulder blades off the floor.
3. Keep the arms straight and avoid straining the neck. If you feel neck pain, take one hand behind the head while keeping the other arm extended.
4. Lower and repeat for 1-3 sets of 12-16 reps.

No tips today!
