Crunches, Reverse

Type: Abs
The reverse crunch is a good alternative to the standard crunch, instead of crunching your upper body towards your legs, you crunch the legs up towards your chest and your upper body remains stationary. This exercise technique can suit some people better than others. It also can help prevent back injury caused by poor technique when doing than the standard crunch .

Crunches, Reverse Steps:

Step 1:
Lie flat on your back on a gym mat on the floor.

Step 2:
Place your hands above your head and hold on to a counter weight such as a dumbbell or medicine ball.

Step 3:
Bend your knees and your hips, so that your knees are pointing towards the ceiling and your feet are parallel to the floor.

Step 4:
Bring your knees up towards your head by crunching your abs.
