Alternating sit-through with crunch

The alternating sit-through with crunch is a full-body movement that starts in a bear crawl position and ends with a leg kicked out to the side. In between reps, you perform a crunch. It is commonly performed for reps or time in bodyweight circuits and animal-style flows, but can also work on its own or as part of a dynamic warm-up or mobility sequence.


  1. Builds strength and size in the shoulders and chest
  2. Increases core strength and stability
  3. Trains shoulder extension and stability
  4. Greater challenge to the rectus abdominis or "six-pack" muscles than traditional sit-throughs
