Abdominal Crunch

Work with Mosley Coaching

Proper Positioning:
• Adjust the seat height to align with your mid-chest.
• Ensure the back pad is positioned against your lower back.
• Your feet should be flat on the floor with your knees forming a 90-degree angle.

Correct Form:
• Place your hands lightly on the side handles without gripping tightly.
• Inhale and engage your core muscles before initiating the movement.
• Exhale as you contract your abdominal muscles, bringing your chest towards your knees.

Range of Motion:
• Focus on a controlled and deliberate motion, avoiding jerky movements.
• Aim for a full range of motion without straining your neck or using momentum.
• Do not let the weight stack touch down between repetitions to keep tension on the muscles.

Resistance and Repetitions:
• Select a resistance level that challenges your muscles without compromising form.
• Start with a moderate weight and gradually increase as your strength improves.
• Aim for 12-15 repetitions per set, ensuring each repetition is performed with precision.

Safety Considerations:
• If you feel strain in your neck or lower back, reassess your form and adjust the machine accordingly.
• Avoid using excessive weight that may lead to improper form or injury.
• If you have any pre-existing conditions, consult with a fitness professional or healthcare provider before using the machine.
