    Muscles worked: Obliques, abdominal

    Instructions:
    Lie on your back on a gym mat or the carpet of your floor. Bend you knees and place your feet flat on the floor about shoulder width apart.(You can also cross your leg over the other. Like the video demonstrates) Place your hands behind your head and neck and keep them there throughout the entire exercise. Using your abdominal strength, curl your left shoulder up off the floor towards your right knee. Keep your head absolutely straight looking upwards throughout the entire exercise. When your shoulder cannot come up any higher, pause there for one second and contract your abdominal. Return to the starting position and repeat for the number of reps assigned. Switch to your right side and do the same number of reps.
    Note You can also alternate from one side to the other from one rep to the other. Secondly, you can place you legs up on top of a flat exercise bench or coach while doing this exercise. Have someone hold your legs for more support and isolation on your abdominal.
    Dont's:
    Don't pull your head up with your hands. This can cause neck injuries. 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: Seated twists, alternate twisting leg raises
