I want to lose 30 pounds and get six-pack abs. Can you tell me the correct way to do crunches effectively because I think I may be doing them wrong.
Here is an explanation of how to do crunches for best results:
Lie down flat on your back with your knees bent and your feet on the floor (or on an elevated surface like a bench or ball).
Hold your hands wherever you feel comfortable (on your chest or beside your head - just be sure you don't pull on your head).
For more detailed info on the crunch, check out our Exercise section and Abdominal Crunches.
Bottom line, aerobic exercise isn't your best bet for losing fat and showing off those abs. Interval training is what you need.
