Instructions: How To

The Handle Band Crunch adds resistance to traditional crunches, targeting the abdominals more effectively. Using a band with handles allows for a controlled motion, enhancing core strength and definition with the added benefit of adjustable intensity.

  1. Wrap a resistance band around a pull up bar or high fixed object and drop down to your knees facing away from the anchor point.
  2. Grab ahold of the resistance band handles at shoulder height with your palms facing forward and your torso leaning forward to created a 45 degree angle with the floor.
  3. Lower your torso to the floor by bending at your hips keeping the resistance band next to your shoulders.
  4. Return to the starting position.
