  1. Lie on an exercise mat, with your back flat, knees bent and your feet flat on the floor slightly wider than shoulder width apart.
  2. Keep both arms laying on the floor by your sides.
  3. Crunch your torso forward and to the right until you can touch your right heel with your right hand.
  4. Return to the starting position and repeat on your left side.
