|Muscles worked: Lower abdominal and Obliques
Lie on your back on a gym mat or the carpet of your floor and place your hands behind your neck. Lift both your legs off the floor about 2-4 inches. Raise one knee towards your head and at the same time twist and bring your opposite elbow towards your knee. Return and alternate to your other knee.
Note IMPORTANT Placing your hands behind your neck is for a support for your head. Not to pull your head up! Pulling up on your neck can cause serious injuries to your neck. Keep your neck straight and let is rise up with your torso.
Use your abdominal muscles to raise your shoulders off the floor. Don't bend your neck. Keep it straight throughout the entire movement.
Alternate exercises: Alternate knee raises
