Another Abdominal Crunch

Place your arms over your head so that each is next to an ear. Hold your hands together over your head in a prayer gesture. Keep your back straight. Bend your knees. Rise about two inches over the floor. Do abdominal crunches either several more inches over the floor, halfway up, or bring your chest to your knees. This is the order lowest to highest intensity.  Come back to two inches over the floor. Exhale when you move up and inhale when you move to the starting position. Choose what you can do and that will give you a good workout. Do four sets of ten repetitions.
