Exercise of the Month – DECemBER 

A cross crunch is great for hitting all the abdominal muscles in one go, with legs coming off the floor, you're getting your lower abs, and because you're coming at an angle, you're hitting your obliques and rectus abdominis too.

It is a simple exercise, and because you're safe and supported on the ground you won't be placing too much tension on your lower back.

This versatile exercise can also be adapted according to your ability.
