MEDICINE BALL CRUNCHES

Exercise Instructions:

  1. Lay flat on the ground and raise your legs, bending at the knees to create a 90* angle.
  2. Hold a medicine ball slightly behind your head.
  3. Crunch up by squeezing your abs HARD.
  4. Imagine you’re passing the medicine ball to your feet. This will ensure you perform a rep with a full range of motion, it’s not about how much weight you use.
  5. For an even better abs contraction, I like to start breathing out BEFORE the rep begins. When you reach the top of each rep, you’ll feel a great (/horrible) burn.

Muscles Worked:

Abs.
