I'm Ryan George, and these are the best kinds of crunches for the abs. So tons of exercises out there for the abs, and the reality is that they're only a couple that are really necessary when it comes to crunches. The first kind is just a regular crunch. So the regular crunch, you want to start with your knees bent, arms are behind the neck or across the neck. It's important when you're doing the crunch that you're not pushing forward on your neck. So your neck kind of stays in the same position. So if the arms are behind the neck, just be aware of it and try not to push your neck forward. When doing the crunch, all you need to do is bring your shoulders about two 2 or 3 inches off the floor, you don't need to sit all the way up. So as long as you curl in, that's it. So it's just a short crunch about 2 to 3 inches off the floor. You're trying to bring your sternum down to your pelvis, and then you extend back. So that's just a regular crunch, simple, straight forward. Second great crunch to do is an oblique crunch. So with the oblique crunch, it's good because in addition to getting the rectus abdominis, which is like the six pack muscle, you also get the muscles on the side, the obliques. So with that one, you start in the same position, or similar position as a regular crunch except that you're gonna take one knee and bring it across the other one. If your right leg, let's say for example is across the left, then you're gonna take your left arm, the opposite arm, and that arm will come crunch up and across towards the opposite knee. So with that one you can do a few reps, a few reps let's say 10 on one side then switch over and do 10 on the other side, in order to complete that exercise. The third exercise is a total body crunch. So this is a little bit more advanced, but it's a really great crunch to do if you can do it. So with this one you start with the arms and legs extended, and at the same time you'll pull your knees in as your crunching up. So the knees come in as you crunch. Again, you don't need to sit up high on this, all you have to do is bring your upper body just a few inches off the floor as the knees are curling in, and at the same time as you bring everything in together, everything extends back out together. So when your legs go out, the arms go out. And that's a total body crunch.
