Ab Plate Crunch - Total Abdominal Exercise

by Patrick Kallie

The Ab Plate Crunch is a very effective exercise because it targets both your upper and lower abs. You will need a plate...it needs to be a weight that you are comfortable with.

While you are laying on your back place the weight across your chest. Your arms should be on each side of the plate. Lift your shoulders about 4 to 6 inches off the ground and hold for 2 seconds. Then slowly release and try to keep your shoulders from touching the floor.

What this does is that it keeps your core muscles engaged the entire time. This exercise can be done in 3 sets in the 8 to 12 rep range.
