1. Cross your arms over your chest while lying flat on your back. Bend your knees and set your feet firmly on the ground. This is where you'll begin.

2. Lift your shoulders and upper back off the floor by bracing your core. Hold for a second at the top, then return to the beginning position.

Benefits

Swiss Ball Crunch Benefits

The Swiss-ball crunch should be a fixture in your workout because it may target the entire core. The rectus abdominis, or six-pack muscles, and the transverse abdominis are the primary muscles targeted by this exercise. When done correctly, however, it also engages muscles that help to support the hips and lower back.
