You probably see and hear it all the time. The key to six pack abs is doing crunches. I’ve read and heard on several occasions that crunches are a waste of time. When trying to achieve a flat stomach, some say that doing other forms of exercise is much more effective. Many of the workouts I follow still have crunches as part of the program. I don’t mind doing them but maybe those who dislike doing them feel they are a waste of time.
Below are some reasons for why crunches may be a waste of time:
- You can’t spot reduce
- Crunches do not burn belly fat
- Crunches build endurance, not muscle
- Crunches strain your neck and back
I am just after more opinions about the topic. If you feel they are a waste of time, please share your thoughts in the comments.
