Reverse Crunch

reverse crunch

Technique

Start laying on the ground with your knees up 90 degrees. Tilt pelvis by pressing your belly toward the spine. Contract your abs, lift legs and hips up by bringing knees in toward the chest, hold 1-3 seconds and slowly release.

Tips

The movement is very small, focus on control. Use abs to lift and avoid swinging to quickly improve strength.

Alternatives

Placed arms by your sides to support, straight out from shoulders or behind the head to make the exercise more challenging.
