***Building ABS with a lower back sensitivity ➡️***
Have lower back injuries ever held you back from knocking out ab exercises with intensity? This myotatic crunch is one I learned from @timferris ’ book, The 4 Hour Body. Why I love it:
1. You can easily recreate it at home (use a couch cushion instead of the BOSU ball).
2. You can easily regress and progress it. Want it harder ? (ALWAYS, DADDY.) Lower your arms further down towards the ground BEHIND you(keep shoulders pulled down and arms straight at all times). Want it easier? Pull your arms down towards the ground in front of you.
3. It supports your lower back, AND takes tension off of the hip flexors, which is one of the biggest strains placed on the body during most ab exercises. This is accomplished since your feet stay on the floor. 10 slow reps will be killer!
