Tips to crunches in proper way:
Before starting with crunches one must know the basic way to do it at home without instructor. Lie down on the floor on the back and bend the knees, placing the hands behind the head or across the chest. Now pull the belly button towards the spine, and flatten the lower back against the floor. Slowly contract the abdominal, bringing the shoulder blades about one or two inches off the floor. Exhale as one comes up and keep the neck straight, chin up. Hold at the top of the movement for a few seconds, breathing continuously. Slowly lower back down, but do not relax all the way. Repeat for 15 to 20 repetitions with perfect form for each rep. To add variation, bring the knees in at the same time and lift the upper body off the floor. To make it more difficult, balance on an exercise ball. By doing this in proper way the fat will reduce in short span and in fun way at home.
Tips:
To keep the neck in proper alignment, place the fist under the chin to keep the head from moving. Keep the back flat against the floor throughout the entire movement. If the back arches, prop the feet on a step or platform to make it easier. Things required to perform this exercise at home are a carpeted floor or mat, abdominal, exercise ball.
