This is a killer abs workout you can do while sitting down anywhere. If you are at the office and have an office chair with wheels you might want to be careful so you don’t fall over. Position yourself on the edge of the chair and grab hold of the seat just under your legs. Do the crunches by lifting yourself from the seat and bring the knees to your chest.
I just did this for the first time and man am I going to be sore in the morning. It says it's a leg workout, but it definitely works your arms and core as well. I can't do burpees because of my ankle and knee injuries so I did a one minute wall sit. Here's to hoping that in six months I have my sexy legs back.
The focus on building back and shoulder muscles is often lost in the hyper focus on leg speed and strength, but after years of hard contact & speed skating stance, you'll need them to be strong to keep neck, shoulder, and back injuries at bay. Back pain during endurance drills is because the muscles are *over stretched* due to good derby form. Make them strong, and the pain will stop. :D // Derby
