Leg-Tucked Medicine-Ball Crunch

 

Overview

The leg-tucked medicine "med" ball crunch strengthens the abdominals and obliques. The med ball makes flexion of the spine more difficult, therefore increasing the difficulty of the exercise. Depending on your goals - choose a lighter ball for muscular endurance or a heavier one for muscular strength. The leg-tucked position decreases the hip flexor involvement.

Description

  • Lie on your back with your legs tucked up, feet off 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.

Mistakes

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

I had taken one or two other courses by different organizations before and they were nowhere near as thorough and in-depth as this one.

The resources ISSA provides (both in hard copy and online) such as the study guide, the coursebook, the chapter summary videos, the exercise videos, and the question board are all very valuable tools...
