Exercise 6 Reverse Crunch

Reverse Crunch

It may seem like the reverse crunch is for the lower abdominalls but, remember, the rectus abdominis is one long muscle, so you can't separate upper from lower. Here are some tips ^.^ :
a) Lie on the floor and place hands on the floor or behind the head.
b) Bring the knees in towards the chest until they're bent to 90 degrees, with feet together or crossed.
c) Contract your abs to curl the hips off the floor, reaching the legs up towards the ceiling.
d) Repeat for 10-14 reps.
e) It's a very small movement, so try to use your abdominals to lift your hips rather than swinging your legs and creating momentum.
f)Be careful when you are making this exercise to have more efficience
