Do crunches hurt your back or do you just flat out HATE doing them? You are NOT alone. I always get asked what are some great moves for working the abs without having to do crunches or sit ups.
First things first, let’s talk WHY crunches SUCK:
Supports bad posture
Puts oressure on your neck, back, and spine.
Aren’t very effective.
They do not tap into the deep core muscles (the ones that minimize belly pooching).
They create tension in the hips.
It will make your Diastasis Recti worse.
They suck. Period.
So, if crunches suck so badly, then what are some better moves to work the abs? Glad you asked!
