The Crunch Pulldown is a very simple exercise to do, perfect for hitting the abs in a way they're not used to at all. For this one, all you need is a high pulley and a bar attachment.

Hook up the bar to the pulley and set a moderate weight on it. You don't want to go too heavy or you won't be able to perform the exercise. Once you do it once, you'll get a better idea of how much weight you can use.

Lie on your back under the pulley. In the picture, I have an adjustable-height pulley and have it set a few feet off the ground. If you have just a regular high pulley that you can move, it'll work exactly the same but you'll have to grab the bar THEN lie down in position rather than lying down first then reaching up and grabbing the bar.

So once you're on your back (with your head diretly under the pulley), pull the bar down so that your elbows are bent about 90 degrees. Your knees should be bent 90 degrees and feet placed flat on the floor for this one. The bar should be 8 to 12 inches above your body. That's the start position.

Now crunch up. But here's the kick - as you're crunching up, don't use the weight to help pull yourself up...instead, perform a pulldown movement as you're crunching up. To do this, just pull the bar down towards your lower chest until it touches your lower chest.

So not only do you get the normal tension from the crunch movement, you're also getting tension on the abs using the weight from the pulldown movement. This really fires up the six-pack muscles to help them stand out. It's a unique angle of resistance that your abs have probably never felt before!
