Muscle Groups
  • Abs and Core
  • Abdominal strength


The high-medicine ball crunch builds abdominal strength. The medicine ball adds resistance and makes the move more challenging than basic crunches. The “med” ball is a fun way to increase the demands of the crunch. The med ball crunch also builds abdominal endurance and core stability.

  • Keeping your neck neutral, roll your upper back off the floor, keeping the ball in front of your face.
  • Return slowly to the start position.


  • Jutting the chin as you crunch up
