Good Form: Crunches that aren't a pain in the neck
If you experience neck pain when you perform abdominal crunches lying flat on the floor, try doing this move with a small, partially deflated ball behind your back. The ball assists you in holding the correct position so you don't overuse your neck muscles. You can also use a firm pillow in place of the ball.
