Exercise Ball Abdominal Crunches
Ab Exercises
Exercise Ball Abdominal Crunches - This is one of the most basic ab exercises that targets the whole of the midsection. It's important with all exercises to activate the core, meaning, even if you are doing standing exercises, or even seated dumbbell exercises, you need to stabilise your own body. To achieve that, all you need to do is simply pull in the naval towards the spine, to activate the core. The core is the abdominal wall, the obliques (on the side), the rectus abdominus, & even the lower back. Always pull the navel in & stabilise the core of your body when doing any exercise. At the start of the movement you get a stretch in the abs by arching the lower back. Coming up, keep the motion short as doing a full motion simply brings in the hamstrings. Keep the movement smooth on the way up & down. There's no need to start rocking & to use momentum, or to complete reps with a fast tempo. Take 2 seconds down, 2 seconds up, with constant tension. Ab crunches on the exercise ball are a simple but effective way to train the abs. Nick Jones - World Bodybuilding Champion & Kymbel Hunt
