Safe Crunches

When performing abdominal crunches be careful not to lift your torso too far off the ground. You should slowly curl your body until no more than your middle back is lifted.
Curling your body any further or doing a full "sit-up" may place undue strain on your back without much added gain for your belly. Talk to your doctor about which exercises are appropriate for you.
