Fitness Tip


Go for perfect form in exercise not speed

So your doing 200 crunches a day yet your not seeing good ab results.
Ask yourself 2 questions:

1. How good is my form?
2. Am I doing reps too quickly?

In order for your exercises to give you the results you desire you need to complete them with slow but precise movements. If your just flailing all over the place you won't be working the muscles that you are trying to target.

Also, if you are running through them as quickly as possible inertia will be helping you complete your reps. You want to move slowly and this will make sure that each part of the muscle gets targeted.

If you slow down and move with deliberate movements you will see much faster and better results.

Plus crunches are one of the least effective exercises that you can do for your ab area.
In the section above called "3 Exercises For Killer abs" you'll find much better options than crunches.
