Tight Crunches

This Sparked Me!

For a better crunch try holding in your stomach during the duration of your set. It will give you a better form and you will feel the crunch working your abdominal muscles!

No equipment needed. Benefits are a better crunch for your abs.

    I always just assumed that holding in the stomach was a norm on all exercises to get to the core and make it stronger.
