I love this exercise because I can feel it working. It’s a great move for your entire abdominal area, including your obliques! Lie flat on the floor with your lower back pressed to the ground. Put your hands beside your head. Bring knees up to about 45- degree angle and slowly go through a bicycle pedal motion. Touch your left elbow to your right knee, then your right elbow to your left knee while straightening the opposite leg. Keep even, relaxed breathing throughout. Continue alternating sides in a ‘pedaling’ motion. Right and Left = one. Here is a video that shows the correct motion.
Beginners – 50 every day
Intermediate – 75 every day
Advanced – 100 every day
Remember you don’t have to complete them all at once, you have all day to get in your reps. Try doing sets of 10 throughout the day as you get free time. Ready, Set, GO!
