Resisted Crunches

Area Targeted: Middle Abs

Set up:
Anchor: Secure the band(s) to the door with the door anchor at the bottom of the door.
Clip Bands: Attach each end of the band(s) to an ankle strap.
Handle Bands: No adjustment required.
Body Positioning: Grip an ankle strap, or handle in each hand and lay on the floor facing away from the door with your knees bent, and feet flat on the floor. Lay far enough away from the door so that the bands are starting to stretch. Keep your arms straight, tight to your body and your palms facing down.

Movement: Raise your body and crunch up, moving the ankle straps or handles 3 to 4 inches towards your heels.

Points To Remember:
1. Keep your arms down
2. Think about moving your rib cage towards your pelvis as you crunch up
