Virtual Fitness: Basic Abdominal Curl

Basic Abdominal Curl

Instructions: The Basic Abdominal Curl is a strength training exercise that targets the abdominals. Clasp hands behind your head, bringing your chin toward your chest. Round your back and slowly curl up. Perform 3 sets of 8 to 10 repetitions. Reduce the number of sets and repetitions according to ability.

Modifications: 1) Bring your knees up toward your chest in a 90 degree angle. 2) Place both feet on a support, such as a bench or chair, with knees in a 90 degree angle.

Caution: Keep elbows pointed outward in order to avoid pulling your head forward.


EXERCISE DOs and DONTs – As with all exercise programs, when using exercise videos that appear on this site, you need to use common sense. If your muscles are weak, either do the modifications, or don’t attempt this exercise if it’s too difficult for you. When starting an exercise program, be sure to discuss your plans with your healthcare provider
