4. Cross Crunch
– Lie on your back with arms and legs diagonally out so that your body forms an “X.”
– Keeping arms and legs straight, bring your right hand toward your left foot, then your left hand toward your right foot, lifting your head, neck, and shoulders off the ground.
– That’s one rep. Aim for one complete set of 10 reps.
