Crunches (with weights)Lie on bench with legs hanging down and dumbbells in hands outstretched over head. Using only your abdominal muscles lift your knees and at the same time your arms as well so that a crunch is performed with weights held above your head. Slowly return to starting position. Repeat. Remember that you have to first train yourself by doing ordinary crunches before you attempt to do this variation as it puts a great strain on your abdominal muscles, which could lead to injury.
