Crunch kicks are a straightforward bodyweight exercise that only needs a suitable exercise mat.

For a reliable ab exercise, all you have to do is lie down and perform a few sets a few times per week.Lift your feet off the ground as you lie down, and bend your knees. Start extending your knees from there, then pull them away from your body before bringing them back. This is beneficial for lower ab growth and core stability.
