The all time classic ab exercise
I have mixed feeling about the crunch. A lot of the newer research seems to recommend moving away from doing crunch/sit-up type movements and instead target the abs by doing exercises that require a stable core while you move your legs (i.e. hanging leg raises, dying bug, ball rollouts, etc.) This is definitely a staple of many people with much better abs than me and has been around a long time so I'll give it 3 stars.
Good form is essential, watch the instruction vid if you're not sure
My favorite ab excercise.
As a beginner this exercise is best for abs, particularly after losing 9 stone in weight after being veryn severely obese / unfit / unflexible, other comments from users sugesting the use of ball rollouts terrifies me / puts me off. This exercise is best.
