Overview

The lever seated crunch (chest pad) is an exercise targeting the abdominal muscles, particularly the rectus abdominis or six-pack muscles. It is performed by sitting on a weight bench with your feet secured under the pads and your back against the padded backrest. You then place your hands behind your head and crunch your torso forward, bringing your chest to your thighs. You then slowly return to the starting position and repeat the movement for the desired number of repetitions. This exercise is a great way to work your abdominal muscles and can help you achieve a six-pack.
