Sit on the chair upright, and place the feet in front of your body. Lean backward while holding the seat, and pull the legs into the chest. Then, lean to one side, and repeat the same motion.
- Chair crunch
Sit upright on the chair, fold the arms across your chest and lift them in order to be perpendicular to your shoulders. Next, just curl down towards the floor, push the elbows towards the hips and hold for a couple seconds.
- Reclining Curl
While sitting on the front of the chair, lean back, with the head over the back of the chair, and put the arms out in front of you.
Note that your chair should be sturdy, and if it has wheels, lock them. If you do these exercises regularly, your abs and core will be strengthened in a very short time!
