How to do it

The crunch exercise is the most common abdominal exercise and often is improperly performed.

Steps :

1.) Start by placing your hands across your chest or on either side of your head as this will be your starting position.

2.) Then slowly raise your upper body (head, shoulders and chest) up off of the floor and towards your knees, squeezing and crunching your abs.

3) Hold this position for a count, squeezing your abs, then return back to the starting position.

Tips :

1.) Make sure to keep your hips straight and your lower back against the floor during this exercise.
