|Ab Crunches are
easily performed by lying on your back and placing the calves on a bench
so that the legs are bent at a 90 degree angle to the floor. Place
the hands behind the head and then raise the head and shoulder blades off
of the ground towards the knees. The range of motion is rather short.
It is not necessary to touch the forehead to the knees as this would require
improper form. Perform the ab crunches slowly and deliberately for
the greatest benefit. These exercises will not help you to lose weight
or achieve your weightloss goals but they will tighten up your abdominal
muscles a bit (dieting is the only way to achieve permanent weightloss).
Ab crunches is arguably

However, as with
any abdominal exercise ab crunches can only strengthen, tone and tighten
the abdominal muscles as abdominal exercises do nothing to rid the body
of its excess body fat tissue and you will not lose weight or achieve your
weightloss goals by using this abdominal exercise. The only way to
lose actual body fat tissue is to follow a fat burning dieting program
capable of accomplishing such a task.
