Fitness Challenges – Bicycle Crunches

Tweet a friend who is away on vacation, or text a relative who may have just gotten home from work, and challenge them to do as many bicycle crunches as possible. You’ll be giving them a way to boost their health and get closer to a six-pack for visits to the beach. If this exercise is new to you, here’s how it works:

  1. Lie flat down so that your lower back is pressed on the floor. Put your hands behind your head and bend your knees.
  2. Pull your shoulder blades back and slowly raise your knees to a 90-degree angle to lift your feet off the floor.
  3. Exhale and slowly bring one knee up towards your armpit in a bicycle pedal motion. Keep your other leg straight at the same time and both legs higher than your hips.
  4. Switch sides and do the same motion on the other side to finish the rep.

Issue this bicycle crunch challenge so that you can help a friend, family member, or even a complete stranger improve their health one exercise at a time.
