So you probably think that doing 100 crunches is easy, right? Yeah, no. It’s actually really hard, and it burns those upper abs like crazy! You’re gonna feel it hard and fast. For me, I felt it after just 20 reps…but I’m a bit of a weenie.

There aren’t really any modifications for the crunch, and even though the move is easy, this is still a pretty tough workout, so I marked it at the intermediate level. You can do it if you’re ready for it, but I think it should be done carefully if you’re a beginner.

But, if you are prepared to try, then you’ll get an awesome workout! I particularly love how this challenge forces you to push yourself. Try this video a couple of times and see how you improve each time!
