Weighted Crunches | Nichole Mellison
A natural progression for those exercisers that find regular crunches easy is weighted crunches. Although there are numerous variations that we offer you in our videos to keep your abdominals “off-guard” and working hard, weighted crunches are a great way to increase effort from your core. Because the AbStar AIR is low-rise, you’ll feel safe performing beneficial weighted crunches close to the floor.
Ab crunches performed on the AbStar Core Trainer help you focus your 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 for best technique and continue to push yourself as your able by adding repetitions, sets and/or weight.
