Whether you want six pack abs or a flat stomach, the abdominal crunch is usually the first exercise everyone tries to do when they work on their abs. This is the most traditional of the core exercises and most widely used across the world. So what makes it one of the best ab exercises?

It works the top part of your abs and it increases your stability making it easier for you to sit up, get out of bed, and increase your overall balance. WHEN DONE CORRECTLY, it can motivate the body to start burning fat more efficiently and work on building up your core for that flat stomach you’ve always wanted.

How To Do The Exercise

1. For the starting position you lie on your back, and bend your knees so your feet are comfortably flat on the floor. Usually the best knee angle is about ninety degrees, but it’s most important to make sure you have a solid footing so adjust to your comfort zone.

2. Comfortably rest your hands on your chest. This will prevent you from pulling your neck as you do the ab exercises and allow you to get more out of your movement.

3. Contract your abs to lift your upper body far enough off the ground so your shoulder blades are no longer touching. Make sure your lower back does not leave the ground! Your lower back provides stability and support for this core exercise.

4. Once your shoulders are off the ground, hold the position for one second and then slowly lower yourself back down until you are back into the starting position.

5. You should do this exercise for 4 sets. The number of reps you do is based on your goals depending if you want a flat stomach or six pack abs.

Tips

1. When you do this move, make sure your neck stays straight by keeping your chin away from your chest. This will prevent neck injury and help your six pack abs get the most out of the exercise.

2. Focus on pushing your abs into each other compared to sitting up. Remember this is a crunch, not a sit-up. So the goal is to make a small movement have great impact on your stomach.

Extra Six Pack Abs Tip

To make the exercise more challenging, take a weight plate and hold it onto your chest. Then use the same instructions as above to do the abdominal crunch. The slower you do the exercise and the longer you keep your shoulders off the ground at the top of the crunch, the more of a workout your six pack abs will get.

Extra Flat Stomach Tip

When trying to obtain a flat stomach it’s more important to focus on a high number of reps than resistance. Therefore when you do the exercise, don’t stop yourself when you get to a certain number of reps. Instead it’s best to do as many crunches as you can to get the abdominals to exhaustion. This will provide better results and a flat stomach.
