The equipment: SkateboardThe trainer: Ky Evans, head trainer at The Studio (MDR), an SPX Pilates studio in Los Angeles
The move: Ab "crawl" crunch
Get into a standard plank position, except place your feet together on the skateboard (placed vertically on the floor). On an exhale, keep your back flat and pull your navel to your spine, flattening the lower abs, as you pull the skateboard toward your chest for a count of four. On an inhale, press out through your toes, straightening the legs, so your feet come back to the starting position, again also on a count of four. Do this for one minute, or until complete muscle exhaustion.
