When it comes to training the core, the crunch is a favorite exercise among fitness enthusiasts. It is an effective way to target the rectus abdominis muscle, which is the main abdominal muscle that helps to flex the spine, but did you know that there are more effective ways to train the core? If your goal is to move with greater ease and efficiency, consider choosing exercises that stabilize the spine, as well as movements that laterally flex and rotate the spine. Mix this up with some heart pumping cardio and you are all set!
