Workout of the Week: Crazy for Crunches

Share this article

Will doing crunches really give you washboard abs?

By themselves, no. But by mixing in a few different exercises, you’ll be on the road to scoring that picture-perfect midsection!

Reminder about crunches: it’s easy to cheat when doing them. Guarantee you get the most out of each set by folding your stomach into your knees, using your core instead of your upper body. This will recruit your abdominal muscles to complete the crunch motion and burn the fat around the tummy!

Time to get to crunching! Here’s what your workout looks like.
