There are plenty of ways to get better abs without doing crunches. Here’s another reason to avoid the exercise: “I believe that doing crunches in order to strengthen your core can be a huge waste of time. It’s much more effective to incorporate core exercises that target your full body to maximize effectiveness and time. A great example is a plank along with a one-legged pushup. Remember to keep your core activated the whole time.” – Doriel Koblenz, personal and group fitness trainer and Microsoft corporate head coach
