Stomach Crunches aren’t very effective and often lead to back problems. To chisel all the core muscles of your abdominals, waist and lower back, nothing beats The Plank. Kneel on the floor, balanced on your forearms and toes. Clasp your hands together. Align your spine and pull your abs in so your lower back doesn’t sag or arch. Hold this position for 3-10 slow counts. Focus on keeping torso straight the entire time. Repeat 2-3 times.
Make physical activity a priority. Block some time off in your calendar to get out and move, get up and stretch or spend a few minutes walking stairs. Treat it just like any other important, can’t miss appointment. If you pencil (or type) it in, it’s much more likely you will make the time.
Stomach Crunches are like pricey skin products. Everyone thinks they’re great, but they often lead to problems. Many contain harsh ingredients that strip your skin of its essential moisture. Others have more “natural” ingredients than you really need. Just like The Plank, nothing beats the pore perfecting simplicity of our 100% natural Witch Hazel.
