Incline Crunch

Elevation Crunch on Bench

How to Incline Crunch

You Should Feel This: Abs

Equipment: Bench

Trainer: Ashley Steele


  1. Lie on the floor with the feet elevated on a bench or platform and both legs straight. Support the weight of the head with your hands. 

  2. Contract the abs and curl the torso towards the thighs. The crunch should focus on pulling the rib cage towards the hips.

  3. Continue the crunch until your upper back is lifted off the ground. Hold the up-position briefly, and slowly uncurl (lower) the torso to the ground in a controlled fashion.

  4. Repeat the crunch movement for the specified amount of time.

  5. You should feel this working the abs and obliques.
