1. Lower ab Circles (1 minute)

This exercise doesn't require crunches at all.  Roll down onto the floor, stretch out arms by your sides, bring your knees in, bring your legs up, lower your legs down slowly exhaling, round out your lower back, don't let it arch, and when it feels like you're going to arch, open up your legs into a big circle and bring your legs back over your head, inhale. Exhale as you lower down, pressing your lower back into the floor and inhale as you open wide and exhale as you lower down and go in the opposite direction. 

2.  Lower ab straight leg (obliques) (1 minute)

Stretch your arms out to the sides and bring your legs over to one side, your shoulders are glued to the floor, lift your legs up and slowly lower them to the other side, looking to the opposite shoulder, lift up again, exhale to the other side, look to the opposite arm, again inhale up, exhale and lower down ot hte other side.
