When performing any abdominal exercise, always remember: quality over quantity!!!
In a standard crunch, don’t just bob your head up and down a hundred times.. lift your shoulder blades off the ground, your head and chest moving up and forward slightly so that your abs literally CRUNCH together. Squeeze HARD at the top, making sure to exhale on each rep. They should BURN by 15 reps.. if they don’t.. you are either doing them wrong or you need to add resistance. Keep them SLOW and CONTROLLED.
