|Home A Abs Workout: Upper Crunch|
Abs Workout: Upper Crunch
This move not only tones and tightens your abdominal muscles including the rectus abdominis and external oblique, but also helps work your rectus femoris (quadriceps muscle) and tensor fascia lata too.
To perform this move:
This move may also be done by placing hands behind the head and keeping your elbows parallel to the floor.
REMEMBER: If you are performing this move with arms crossed behind your head, don't pull your neck to lift you off the bench. Your arms should only provide support for your neck; the wider your elbows, the more focus is placed on your abdominal muscles.
ALTERNATIVES: You can also use a standard bench or Swiss ball for this
move. Lie on the floor and rest your calves on the bench or ball.
