How to Do Suitcase Crunch

The suitcase crunch should begin with good posture to avoid injury. Brace the spine by drawing your lower abdomen inward. Your core muscles should be activated to support your posture as you perform the exercise.

If any pain is experienced, immediately stop the suitcase crunch.

2. Return to your starting posture and complete the exercise as directed in the training plan.
