How To Do Weighted Crunches

  • Lay on a flat surface with your feet placed so that your knees are higher than your hips.
  • Hold a weight at arm’s length above your shoulders. This can be a barbell, dumbbells or even a weight plate.
  • While keeping your head in line with your upper spine and hips down, curl your chest towards your hips to raise the weight higher above you.
  • Keep your arms straight up as you move and control the descent by slowly returning to the start.
