Crunch

Type: Abs
The standard abdominal crunch exercise targets the stomach muscles. The crunch is a safe and effective exercise that is great for beginners to help develop strong abdominal muscles.
Level :  Equipment : No
Abdominals
Obliques

Crunch Steps:

Step 1:
Lie on your back with knees bent and feet firmly placed on the floor.

Step 2:
Tighten the ab muscles and draw them in towards the spine. Maintain this throughout the exercise movement.

Step 3:
Either place the hands on the thighs (easiest), across the chest (more challenging) or at the side of the head (most challenging).

Step 4:
Tense the abdominals to lift and curl the shoulders and chest towards the knees.

Step 5:
Make sure the lower back stays in contact with the mat.

Step 6:
Lower yourself back down to the beginning.

Top Tip:

To get the most out of this exercise, keep your lower back on the floor and move your shoulders and head towards the ceiling. The movement should only occur in your abdominals and not the hips.
