If you’re frustrated with the results you’re getting from your ab workout, you’re probably doing it wrong. It’s really easy to make simple mistakes while doing common ab excises, but they can make a big difference in the way you are training your stomach muscles.

Crunches are super popular, but few people actually know the correct form. You’re actually supposed to tilt your pelvis slightly so it draws your lower abs into the floor before you start the crunch. This forces the muscles at the bottom of your stomach to do the work. If you’re using other muscles in your neck and shoulders instead of your lower abs, the muscles in your upper stomach can bulk up instead of thin down.
