The reverse crunch involves curling your hips up a little and then off the floor, this means you will feel it in the lower part of the abs. When doing this exercise, avoid swinging your legs in an effort to raise the hips.
This is a small movement and you only need to flex your hips a few degrees in order to lift them off the floor.
- Begin supine on the floor with your hands on your chest or on the floor next to your hips.
- Bring your knees up towards your head until they are bent greater than ninety degrees. You can keep your feet together or cross them, whichever is the most comfortable.
- Once in this position utilize your abs and curl your hips up a slight amount off the floor. After they are off the floor, extend your feet upwards toward the ceiling.
- Lower the legs and hips back down and extend the legs out nearly parallel to the floor. Repeat as directed.
