The abdominal crunch is widely used and well known but care needs to be taken to avoid injuring the spine. Move some furniture if required and get down on the floor on your back with the knees raised off the floor just a little. The neck should be held with your hands but not pulled on. Tighten the abs without lifting the lower back. Lift the shoulders 8-10 inches, but avoid rounding the back, keep the eyes on the ceiling and maintain for a few seconds.

Lower back down while maintaining some tightening of the abdominal muscles and repeat. Redo for maybe 15 or 20 times. If you want to increase the intensity you can contract the abs at a slower rate, or maybe place some weight across your chest.
