Crunch and twist to flatten your belly
Begin by positioning yourself in the standard crunch position. As you raise yourself upwards, gently twist your body from the waist. Note that you should not twist from your back or your shoulders.
Aim to touch your left knee with your right elbow, before untwisting yourself and returning to the position that you started in. Do this for about 10 times. Thereafter, repeat the routine on the opposite side, again doing so for 10 times.
Always stop if you experience any discomfort or pain and remember that the more fit you are, the more comfortable you will feel when exercising.
Consult your doctor
Always remember to consult with your doctor before starting any new exercise regime or making intense changes to your current one – especially if you suffer from any medical conditions and for some reason are required not to place your body or yourself under any form of stress or strain.
