Home ab workout: crunch exercise for 6-pack abs

Don’t let the TV ads convince you to buy some bulky contraption that will gather dust in your closet, crunches are safe and effective! This video clip shows how to do crunches with varying degrees of difficulty based on your ability. Remember that ab exercises alone will not give you abs! If you have the best abs in the world they will be completely invisible if you are overweight. Aerobic exercise and proper diet are even more important than ab exercises in getting that sought after 6-pack. Form is very important in crunches, many people do them incorrectly and end up working out their neck or hips more than their abs. Use slow movements and only use the abs. Concentrate on trying to raise your shoulders straight up towards the ceiling. Don’t worry about how many reps you do but focus on using perfect form. No whipping the head around or flapping your arms! This is not a sit-up either, the hips are stationary. Also important is to minimize any tension in the neck, I do this by very lightly supporting my head with my hands or the weight plate The main reason to workout abs is because strong abs stabilize your lower back and shield you from injury but as a side benefit a 6-pack looks great!

    Do you think you could give me a few pointers as to get a larger following? I know it was hard work for you to do this, and that you dont owe me anything. But I am working so hard for this. I put everything I can into my company. I finally got youtube to sponsor one of my videos. Do you have any suggestions? Any help would be greatfully appreciated, also I have a very strong core, and owe some of it to a few of your videos. thanks.

    Hey scooby, i was reading on your website that you should NOT sync your breathing with exercises, is this the same for crunchies? If not please can you explain to me.
