Overview

The crunch (hands overhead) is an exercise targeting the abdominal muscles, particularly the rectus abdominis or six-pack muscles. The exercise is performed by lying on the ground with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Your hands are placed overhead, and you curl your upper body up towards your knees, keeping your lower back pressed into the floor. You then lower yourself back down to the starting position. This exercise can be performed for multiple sets of repetitions, and the number of repetitions and sets can be gradually increased as you get stronger.
