Overview

The crunch (on exercise ball, arms straight) is an exercise targeting the abdominal muscles, particularly the rectus abdominis or six-pack muscles. The exercise is performed by lying on an exercise ball with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Your arms should be straight out in front of you, parallel to the floor. Inhale and then exhale as you contract your abdominal muscles and curl your upper body up towards your knees. Hold the contraction for a second or two before slowly returning to the starting position. Repeat for the desired number of repetitions. This exercise is a great way to strengthen your abdominal muscles and improve your core stability.
