Health Tips

Crunch the Crunch

Thought crunches were THE exercise to all your abdominal dreams? Do yourself a favor and drop crunches, reverse crunches, situps, machine crunches and other spine-crushing movements all together. Not only do these movements weaken your spinal column, but they may also cause bad posture. There is a safer and superior approach to getting toned six pack abs.

According to Olympic Strength and Conditioning Coach, Charles Poliquin, if an athlete isolates their abs with crunches they will not see any improvements in their ab strength after 6-8 weeks… “Some of these guys can claim all these poundages used in ab training, but it’s actually the psoas doing the work. If you truly isolate the abs, after six to eight weeks an athlete will plateau the rest of his life.” Meaning, ab isolation movements such as crunches aren’t what you thought they were!

The Two Main Functions of the Abdominal Muscles:

  • Rectus Abdominus - flexes the spinal column forward 30 degrees. Any additional movement beyond 30 degrees is caused by the muscles that flex your hips
  • Transversus Abdominus - stabilize the upper body and helps keep your posture

Almost all the daily things you do work the stabilizing muscles. When you run these muscles engage to keep your shoulders above your hips. Without these muscles your upper body would tip over. Same with doing an exercise like a standing shoulder press. Your abs are forced to work harder than usual to insure your body doesn’t fall forward or backward when you raise and lower the weight. This is a great indirect ab exercise!

How do you get six pack abs without crunches?

It is simple to maintain muscle density in any muscle by performing isometrics (flexing the muscle without any movement involved). The nice thing about isometrics is you will build muscle density without increasing the size of the muscle. This is exactly what your goal should be if you’re looking for amazing abs.
