Abs crunch machine

Muscle group: Abdominal


1. Select a light resistance and sit down on the ab crunch machine placing your feet under the pads provided and grabbing the top handles. Your arms should be bent at a 90 degree angle.

2. At the same time, begin to lift the legs up as you curve your upper torso. Breathe out as you perform this movement.

3. After a second pause, slowly return to the starting position as you breathe in.

4. Repeat the movement for the prescribed amount of repetitions.


Be sure to use a slow and controlled motion. Concentrate on using your abs to move the weight while relaxing your legs and feet.


For this exercise, always select a weight that you can easily handle as using too much weight can easily lead to injury.
