Medicine Ball Crunches

Muscle Groups Worked:


How to Perform This Exericse:

1) Start in the laying position with the small of your back/butt on an exercise ball, holding a medicine ball in your hands behind your head.

2) Begin by bringing the ball as far upward toward the ceiling as you can in a crunch-motion, until your torso is perpendicular to the floor.

3) After holding there for a moment, slowly return to the original start position.

Make sure that you aren’t bouncing your body on the ball and using momentum to get your torso up. ¬†You can preferentially hit one side of your abdominals by rotating slightly and bringing your body to one side, or the other.
