SETUP: Secure your feet to a decline bench and lay back. Hands should be placed either in an “X” across your chest or lightly touching the side of your head. Don’t wrap your fingers behind your head, this encourages people to yank their neck, which is bad news.
REP: Crunch up by squeezing your abs hard from the bottom of the rep to the top.
TIP: Like regular crunches, I start breathing out BEFORE the rep and continue breathing out until you get the squeeze at the top. This will give you a far greater abs contraction, and the set will feel 10x harder. That’s a good thing!
