Chris: The Health Beat Ab Crunch and Leg Lift. The core is defined as any muscle from the shoulder to the hips. To use the Ab Crunch, we are going to lay flat on the bench and have either the feet interlocked into the loop or on top. Beginner users may want to have their feet inside of the loop, but then more advanced users can begin putting their feet outside of the loop on top.

Camera switches to a front view as of the man as he continues to do crunches. Camera switches back to side view as the man does crunches.

Chris: We’re going to lift our body up to a forty-five-degree angle and then lower back down. And since we are using body weight it’s important to remember more repetitions will increase the difficulty of this exercise.

[video: side view of the man as he continues to do crunches. Camera pulls back for a full view of Chris standing next to the man as he does crunches. Scene switches as the man is laying with his head towards the hand and foot hold. He holds onto the loop hand hold and lifts his legs straight up in the air.]

Chris: To do the leg lift the user is going to grasp the bar in his hands and then begin by lifting his legs to a forty-five-degree angle. And then lowering his legs back down. This is going to engage the lower part of the abdomen. And then again do as many repetitions as you can and because we’re using body weight more repetitions will make this more difficult.

[video: front view of the man as he lifts his legs up and down. Camera switches to a side view of the man’s upper body as he holds onto the loop hand hold.
