Bicycle Crunch Variation with Dumbbell Punch

  1. Instead of lying completely flat on the floor like you typical would for this exercise, you want to balance your self in a more upright position.
  2. Grab dumbbells (I am using 10lb DBs in this video). Hold with bent arms and palms facing each other.
  3. Bend knees and lift legs off of the floor. This will be your starting position.
  4. Now simultaneously, slowly go through a cycle pedal motion kicking forward with the right leg. Simultaneously extend your right elbow and rotate wrist as if you are throwing a punch.
  5. Return to starting position.
  6. Perform the same movements using your left leg and arm.
  7. Continue alternating in this manner until all of the recommended repetitions for each side have been completed.
