I hate crunches and sit ups for training core/abs.
They can be some of the worst exercise for your core and if anything will also more than likely do damage to your lower back.
Bottom line, ditch sit ups and crunches and stop chasing the “burn”.
Some better options for training the core are planks, side planks, weighted carries, ab wheel, paloff holds and using the stability ball.
The stability is a great tool for training the core/abs.
Here Are 5 Intense Stability Ball Core Exercises
#1 Stability Ball Knee Ups
#2 Stability Ball Roll Outs
#3 Pike Ups
#4 Stir The Pot
#5 Plank With Partner Agitation
If you have trouble sneezing or brushing your hair tomorrow it’s from these exercises :).
Give these exercises a try.
