Does crunches help you reduce weight and develop sex pack abs?
Depends on a lot of things for example your starting body weight, doing crunches is not so much so an abdominal region weightloss exercise, it is more of a exercise to thicken and strengthen your core. Diet and cardio are the things that blast off the fat, the crunches if done effectively make sure that your abs are developed when the cardio and clean eating has done its job eating away at your stomach fat. Also note that it is in your best interest to not do crunches only, as your abdominal region is made up of 3 regions which are not all equally challenged by crunches. Try hanging leg raises, for lower abs and oblique twists.
Those are not the only workouts, just general ideas of how to approach getting 6 pack abs.
Nope. Crunches train the abdominal muscles, nothing more nothing less. Losing weight and building six-pack abs both take more than just doing crunches.

yeah jclaffee is right, not a good approach, your diet is more important. Since your a woman (I'm assuming by the name) your body requires more water than a man, and if your eating a lot of sugars, your body is retaining more fats. Without a proper diet, you could do thousands of crunches and it really wouldn't be effective.

Why does my lower back hurts when I do abs workout?I lay down on my back and do several different sit-ups, sometimes with the upper body, sometimes with the legs getting up and down. But my lower back always hurt. I can feel a gap between my back and the floor when I lay down on my back.

I have heard many people complain about not being able to get a six pack, but the problem I find is most people aren't willing to put forth the time and effort it takes to get one and fall for the fast abs gimmicks that refuse to point out the fact that everybody's different. "does anybody...
