There are three muscle groups to the abdominals. The first of these is the rectus abdominis, the wall of muscle that covers the front of the abdomen and gives your abs a washboard appearance. The rectus abdominis helps flex your torso forward at the waist. When it contracts, it pulls your hips toward your shoulders.

The second important muscle group is the obliques at the sides of the hips. This group is usually called the external obliques, although there are really three layers of muscle, including the external, internal, and transverse oblique muscles. The obliques contract to bend your torso to the side and help you twist your torso in relation to your hips.

The final muscle group is the intercostals, which run diagonally across your sides above the obliques. Your intercostals run from the top of your obliques up to the serratus muscles of your chest, and they contract to help flex your body at the waist and twist your torso in relation to your hips and legs.

Ab Crunches, and Ab Exercises can be done in many different ways using various types of equipment. Below is just one of the many ways to exercise your abdominals.

Machine Crunches

Emphasis: Machine crunches allow for a convenient method of adding resistance, in the form of weight plates, to the exercise. As in crunches, the upper abs are stressed, but even more than with body weight alone.

Starting Position: Sit on the seat and adjust according to your body. Hook your feet under the bar pads if appropriate, depending on the machine. Reach back and grasp the handles of the machine. Put your chin to your chest at the starting point of the movement.

Movement Performance: You must do four things at once to perform crunches. Force your shoulders toward your hips. Use lower abdominal strength to pull your hips toward your shoulders. Use your upper abdominals to pull your shoulders toward your hips. Forcefully blow air out of your lungs.

When you perform these four tasks, you will feel a very powerful contraction in your front abdominal wall. Hold this contraction for a brief moment, return to the starting position and repeat the exercise.
