Ab Curl

This Exercise is used to strengthen the rectus abdominus. The rectus abdominus is responsible for the striated look of the abdominals known as the 'six pack'. Proper execution of this exercise requires a slow controlled movement with full extension and a tight contraction. The obliques and transverse abdominus play a big supporting role in this movement as well. Keeping your knees bent and your feet closer to your body will protect the back during this movement.

Starting position: Lie on a bench or mat with your knees bent. Cradle your head in you fingers or place your hands on your abdominals.

Movement: Slowly lift your shoulders and move your rib cage towards your pelvis. Do not bend at the hips. Slowly lower back to starting position.
