Ab Crunches | Nichole Mellison
Using an unstable surface for ab crunches can be very beneficial in achieving the most effective exercise and increasing calorie burn. Proper positioning is critical. To best achieve great-looking abs, you’ll need your ab muscles to support your upper torso throughout your ab crunches. No resting between repetitions, please. Use the negative force of gravity to work for positive results. Proper form is critical for the most efficient exercising.
Watch Nichole in the video as she maintains the continuous muscle tension required to hold her upper torso off the ground. That means she’s working harder and with better form. Because of the small surface area and the low profile of the AbStar AIR, there’s no more resting between repetitions. Rest only after your sets, so you achieve more effective ab workouts.
As you can see, ab crunches performed on the AbStar Core Trainer focus the work purely on the abdominals, where it should be. No more enlisting of hip flexor muscles when you should be targeting the abs with your crunches. Watch Nichole in the video and you’ll learn how to get stronger abs and a stronger core. Then, all you have to do — is the exercise!
