Hi, I’m James Rizzo. And I’m going to introduce you to how to do a proper crunch.

What we’re going to start with is our hands behind our head. We’re going to lie back, with our legs 90 degree angle, okay? Feet flat on the floor. It’s not a lot of movement in this, but it’s very effective. So I’m going to just keep my hands lightly on the back of my head so I’m not pulling on my neck when I come up. And I want to exhale, hold that position for about a one or two count, lower back down to the floor. Okay? Once again, don’t stay long at the floor. Come right back up, hold that position, and exhale. So exhale as you start to come up, holding that crunch for about a one or two count, come back down. Like I said, don’t rest on the floor. But while you keep the resistance on that abdominal region. It’s not a lot of movement, as you can see. But it’s very effective.

So you’re targeting right now the upper abdominals. Okay? Also notice I keep my chin high, so I’m not leaning down and straining my neck. You just want to keep your chin neutral. Kind of pick a spot right above eye level and stare at it. All the same time, performing the crunch. Make sure you’re breathing. Also very important.

A lot of things to remember, but if you do it properly, you’ll feel it in the right spot. Right in the upper abdominals.

That’s the proper form of how to do a crunch.

What about inhaling when you go down?? That's a big part of "proper breathing" he was talking about!

Borys Kerchu says:

This Charming LoveHound says:

People saying about skipping leg day are ignorant. His quads and hamstring are buff, it's his ankles that are skinny which he can't do anything about and calves are hard to add mass to.. not his fault.

martin zavala says:

Bro I'm 15 and my legs are more muscular than his

Vaggos M. says:

God, 90% (more actually) are about his chicken legs. What the Heck, I can't even see any legs, what are you talking about?

When you trip for a second thinking a ripped body is just carrying a head up and down – it can't be unseen.
