To Develop Strength in Your Abdomen Muscles


Crunches will help you to develop strength in your abdomen muscles. To get started, you’ll first want to make sure you can correctly do crunches.

You can follow these steps below to try to do them:

1. Lie on your back on the floor. If you use a mat you will feel more comfortable, but make sure it doesn’t have too much cushioning.

2. Bend your knees. Your feet can be flat on the floor, or you can keep them suspended in the air during your crunches for a little extra crunch.

3. Cross your arms in front of your chest. You can also place your hands behind your neck or head. Make sure your head and neck is resting on your hands.

4. Lift your shoulders towards the ceiling using your abdominal muscles and pause at the peak. It is very important not to lift your entire back off the floor, as this can cause back strain. When your shoulders are off the ground, pause and hold that position for a full second.

5. Ease back down slowly as you inhale. Don’t just drop your entire body back down. Your control on the way down works your ab muscles as well.
