PURPOSE OF EXERCISE: Emphasizes lower
EXECUTION: This is a variation of
Hanging Reverse Crunches. (1) Instead
of hanging from a bar, position yourself
on a vertical bench that allows you to
support yourself on your elbows and
forearms and bring your knees up to the
level of your abdomen. (2) From this
starting position, raise your knees up as
far as possible toward your head,
rounding your back and rolling yourself
upward into a ball. At the top of the
movement, hold and crunch the ab
muscles together for full contraction,
then lower your knees to the starting
position with the knees pulled up. Again,
don’t lower your legs beyond this
starting point.
