Reach And Catch Instructions

  1. Set up for the reach and catch by placing a mat on the floor and laying down on your back.
  2. Keeping your feet together, pull your feet in toward your torso so that your knees are raised off the floor.
  3. Take both hands and place them on your right thigh. Your shoulder blades should be slightly off the floor. This is the start of the exercise.
  4. Crunch your abs, pulling your hands up your right thigh until you reach your knee.
  5. Slowly lower back to the start.
  6. Repeat for desired reps, and then repeat for the left side of your body.
