Muscle Groups
  • Abs and Core
  • Abdominal strength


Medicine-ball crunches target and define the abdominals. Using a medicine ball increased the resistance on the abs and obliques. This additional core muscle recruitment leads to faster results.


  • Lie on your back with your legs bent and feet flat on the floor.
  • Hold the medicine ball at your chest, close to the chin.
  • Keeping your neck neutral, roll your upper back off the floor.
  • Return slowly to the floor.


  • Jutting the chin as you crunch up
  • Holding the medicine ball too low toward the stomach
