Exhale when you contract your stomach muscles and inhale when you lower your head and shoulders to the ground.

Here, you lie with your had behind your head, put the legs straight p with your knees crossed and lift your head and shoulders off the floor with your legs extended the whole time, even after you have laid back down and completed a rep.
This is basically incorporating a lunge and twisting your upper body
slightly while in the lunge position. In a lunge, stand with your legs hip width apart with your knees slightly bent; lift your hands, aligning them with your shoulders, parallel to the ground. Then, take a huge step forward with one leg and sit down as if on chair, keep your spine straight and twist the torso to the right and then the left.

This can also be easily done at home with an exercise ball. Lie on the ball so that your lower back is supported; place your hands across your chest or behind the head. Contract your stomach muscles and lift your torso up and forward and lower back down. Ensure the ball is stable during each crunch.
