Feet-elevated crunch

The feet-elevated crunch is a variation on the basic crunch, a very popular ab move. Resting the feet on a bench takes some of the hip flexor activation out of the movement, focusing the stress more on the abs. It may have a small range of motion, but this movement produces a major burn.


  1. Elevating your feet forces your abs to handle a greater percentage of the load
  2. Great burnout during an ab workout
  3. Great for isolating the rectus abdominis or "six-pack" muscles
  4. Can be performed using a couch or any other elevated surface
