Lever Seated Crunch

Instructions

Preparation

Position seat so shoulders are the same height of padded lever. Sit in machine and place arms over lever pad. Push padded lever down slightly until shoulder is fixed at approximately 90º or slightly greater.

Execution

With the hips stationary, flex the waist in a "C" shape so the elbows point downward. Return and repeat.

Comments

Maintain shoulders fixed at 90º or greater so upper arm and upper back are close to perpendicular. Men should keep chest close to padded lever. Women may choose to position chest as close as possible without making contact with inside of lever. See Spot Reduction Myth.
