Annabel Rolley's Bicycle Kicks

If you hate crunches as much as I do, you'll like this core exercise. Annabel Rolley calls them 'bicycle kicks.'

Crunches are one of those ab exercises on which trainers disagree. the tide of opinion seems to be turning against their use because they put an unusual amount of stress on your lower back. All I know is that I have trouble doing them properly, and an improperly done exercise is rarely good for you!

Annabel's bicycle kicks are deceptively easy. In fact, while you're actually doing them, you can be fooled into believing that they aren't doing much for your core at all. But I think that's the genius of their design. While you may not feel much while you do them, you WILL begin to feel their effects shortly after you finish... and I do mean shortly. I can feel their effects on my abs within five to ten seconds after I'm done, and I can still feel them several minutes afterward.

The great thing to me is that (1) they don't hurt my back and (2) I can maintain proper form while I do them.

So if you're looking for a good ab exercise, this might be one you'd like to consider. Especially if you have trouble doing crunches.
