These four ab exercises are commonly done incorrectly, but fortunately, the fixes are pretty simple.
4 WORST AB EXERCISE MISTAKES YOU’RE MAKING AND HOW TO FIX THEM
EXERCISE #1: LEG RAISES
❌ PROBLEM: Swinging too much, going way too fast and your back going way too far back.
✅ FIX: Keep your upper body in place and push your legs forward. A great way to keep your back in place is to flex your core before beginning the rep.
EXERCISE #2: CABLE CRUNCH
❌ PROBLEM: Hands fully extended at the top of the rep and elbows touching the ground at the bottom of the exercise instead of your knees.
✅ FIX: Place the bar behind your head and lock your arms into position at the top. As you come down, you will want to bring your elbows to your knees instead of the ground.
EXERCISE #3: MACHINE CRUNCH
❌ PROBLEM: Not using the full range of motion and performing pulse reps.
✅ FIX: Be sure you are lengthening and shortening your abs as much as possible using the full range of motion. Be sure you are performing the movement with your abs and not pushing down with your arms.
EXERCISE #4: DOUBLE OBLIQUE SIDE CRUNCH/BEND
❌ PROBLEM: Placing weight in both hands. This ends up offsetting each other and is essentially the same as holding no weight at all.
✅ FIX: Drop one of the weights. Use one single dumbbell or plate at a time. This will allow you to place resistance on the opposite oblique versus balancing out.
These are very simple form corrections that will make your ab training much more effective! We hope these Ab tips helped you if you were making some of these common mistakes.
