How to do a Bicycle Crunch
- Crunches are not full sit-ups
- Form is important
Crunches have been proven to be one of the most effective exercises to target the abs and obliques. That being said, adding crunches to your ab workout is a must. No matter which variation of crunch you’re doing, if you’re not using the proper form when doing crunches, you won’t see the results you expect.
CAUTION: If you’re a beginner, or not in optimal shape for exercise, start slowly! Consult a physician before starting a new exercise regimen.
- Never jerk up on your neck and head when doing bicycle crunches.
- Keep your chin pointed upward.
- Squeeze your abs when lifting off the floor, and on the way down.
- Having a comfortable exercise mat helps you do more reps.
- Start slow, you will build endurance over time.
