How to Do Straight Leg Crunches from Heel to Toe

This exercise may be performed by anyone who has no injuries or restrictions in the movement of the CORE muscles.

You want to be sure at all times that you're not exerting pressure on the neck and head so as to cause the chin to curl toward the chest.

Always support the neck and keep the eyes focused on the ceiling.

Also, maintain the sucked-in tummy and keep the hips squeezed together throughout the exercise.

Discontinue this exercise when unable to maintain proper form any longer. Without proper form, this exercise becomes both unsafe and ineffective.
