Dumbell Split Lifts

  • Wear a knee band, as your knees take the brunt of the force.
  • Alternating arms improves agility and coordination.
  • The abdominal crunch is the most basic and one of the most effective exercises you can perform to strengthen and tone your abdominal muscles. Abdominal muscle strength is a key component of flatter, firmer stomach.
  • While keeping your back straight and head up, dip your legs and jump to a straddled position (one foot in front of the other) while pushing the weight up over your head to a locked out overhead position to complete the movement.
  • Note that the jump and lift happens in one swift movement with your body "jumping" underneath the dumbbells to receive the weight..
  • lso note that you need to keep your head up and back straight as you finish the movement.
  • Don't curve your back, always make sure it is straight at all times.
  • Avoid this exercise if you have back knee and shoulder problems.
