Weighted Crunches | Nichole Mellison
Weighted crunches are a natural progression for those exercisers that find regular crunches easy. There are numerous crunch variations that keep your abdominals “off-guard” and working hard. Weighted crunches “up the ante” and are a great way to increase effort from your core. Because the Exercise Star is low-rise, you’ll feel safe performing beneficial weighted crunches close to the floor.
Ab crunches performed on the Exercise Star help you focus your work purely on the abdominals. No more enlisting of hip flexor muscles when you should be targeting the abs with your crunches.
Watch Nichole for best technique and continue to push yourself as your able by adding repetitions, sets and/or weight.
