Building Your Abs with the Reverse Janda Crunch


Building Your Abs with the Reverse Janda Crunch
    Coach Noss is home this week before heading to Atlanta for the Tour Championship, then on to Medinah, Illinois for the 2012 Ryder Cup. Even during breaks from the road, Coach doesn't want to keep his fans hanging! In this video, he introduces a core-based exercise, the janda crunch with reverse breathing. For the janda crunch, put your feet against the wall to emphasize abdominal muscles. As some people say the normal crunch position aggravates back pain, this is a great alternative since it keeps your spine compressed on the floor and still provides you with a full range of motion.  
    
    Get in the janda crunch position with your feet and upper legs at 90 degrees. Apply slight pressure with your feet against the wall, take a deep breath and go for the crunch. Give yourself time to get used to the reverse breathing; you'll be working your abs in a way they've never worked before! 
    
    This technique is also used for martial arts training!  If this seems easy, add some weight! Coach uses a 25-lb plate weight but suggests using whatever works for you. Thanks for the tips, Coach. You know what to do! It's time to get moving!
