Ab Crunch – Exercise of the Week

  • Lay on your back on a mat or towel, feet flat on the floor, knees bent, arms crossed over chest
  • In our example below David has one leg straight to help maintain a neutral spine during the exercise which can help people that suffer lower back pain when performing ab curls
  • Slowly raise your shoulders off the floor, moving them towards your knees.
  • Unlike a sit-up your ower back should not leave the floor.
  • Pick a spot the ceiling to concentrate on and keep your neck in a neutral relaxed position.
  • Once your shoulder blades are off the ground then slowly lower yourself back down again.
