Dr. Luke Reineck with BioVeda Health and Wellness Center of Milford, Ohio shares these fitness tips from WebMD on his BioVeda of Milford blog and offers additional fitness advice.  He points out that during the abdominal work out, they show an option of bending the knees and keeping the feet off the floor in a crunch-style sit up.  This is not recommended  because that position engages the hip flexors causing them to tighten when the purpose of the sit-up is to isolate the abdominal muscles.  Also remember to support your neck and crunch using your abdominal muscles, not your neck and shoulders!
