Pass Crunch

We did this exercise at boot camp last week and I loved it!  It’s one of the only ab exercises that has made me sore in the last while.  Here’s what you do:

Hold a stability between your feet with legs extended.  Hold a dumbbell up above your head, extended, with one side in each hand.  Before starting, lift your head and shoulder blades off the floor to this starting position:


From here, take the dumbbell in your right hand and bring it down behind your legs and pass to the left hand like this (excuse the very strained looking face): 


 Complete the circle by then taking the dumbbell into your left and bringing it up to the starting position and beginning another rep by passing it to your right hand.  Try to do 6 reps in each direction.

Your abs will be screaming at you tomorrow, I promise!
