- Sit on the ab machine and select a slight resistance. Position your feet under the pads and grab hold of the top handles.
- Make sure your arms are bent at 90 degrees and rest your triceps on the pads.
- Begin lifting your legs up as you engage your abs and crunch your upper torso. Exhale as you do so.
- Pause and slowly return to starting position as you inhale.
Tip: Use slow, controlled motions and concentrate on using your abs to control the weight. Your feet and legs should be relaxed throughout.
