Browsing: Upper abdominal exercises

When performing some abdominal exercises, it often feels like the muscle is divided into an upper and lower section.
Although the abdominal muscles have intersegmental nerve stimulation, you are not able to contract one section independent of the other. However, when you stabilize the hips and only lift the trunk, there is relatively more muscle shortening in the upper abdominal region, which leads to greater muscle involvement in that region.
These are some of the most effective upper abdominal exercises for men: basic abdominal crunch, classic floor sit-up, kneeling cable crunch, and machine crunch.
