The Perfect Crunch

What makes the perfect crunch?  Is the movement from the shoulders, and how exactly do you tighten "from the inside"?

Start by lying on the floor, with your knees up and your feet on the floor.  Then inhale, and exhale all the air out of your lungs.  This should tighten your abdominal muscles "from the Inside", or bring your "belly button to your spine".  Now keep that tight, and breathe normally--excellent!  All right, now, I want you to lift your head up off the floor, finger tips lightly supporting your head, and then lift the shoulder blades up off the floor.  You're halfway you lift, exhale, as you lower, inhale...

Now for the other half.  Pull in from the bottom half, as well.  Tighten your pelvic floor, and draw that tight as you lift your upper body, squeezing from both that's a perfect crunch!
