Muscles Crunches

ACTION OF THE ABDOMINAL MUSCLES

Kneel in front of the machine, holding the handle behind the neck:

• Exhale and roll the spine as you lower the sternum toward the pubis.

This movement is never performed with heavy weights. Concentrate on feeling the muscles contract, mainly the rectus abdominis, in order to focus the work on the abdominal core.

Sit at the machine, grasp the handles, and position the feet under the pad:

• Inhale and roll the spine, trying to bring the sternum to the pubis.

• Exhale at the end of the movement.

This exercise allows you to adjust the weight, or workload, to your ability. To avoid risk, beginners should use light weights. Well-trained athletes can use heavier weights.
