Reverse Crunches

  1. Lie flat on your back with your knees bent at a 90-degree angle and your arms to the side of your torso with the palms on the floor. This is the starting position.

  2. While inhaling, move your legs towards the torso as you roll your pelvis backwards and you raise your hips off the floor. 

  3. Hold the contraction for a second and move your legs back to the starting position while exhaling.

  4. Repeat for the recommended amount of repetitions.


  • Your arms should be stationary for the entire exercise.

  • Focus on slow, controlled movement - don't cheat yourself by using momentum.
