Abdominal exercises are probably my least favorite thing to do.
They can be hard and very tiring.
But I know that I must get them in to achieve the goals I have set and to just keep everything strong.
One abdominal exercise that I really do enjoy is the Straight Leg Reverse Crunch.
I do love these primarily because they hit the lower abs.
This is a big problem area for me.
A lot of people will do sit up after sit up but never hit the lower abs as much.
Here is a quick video from last night’s training session…
A couple of things to keep in mind while doing these…
- Make sure to keep your lower back glued to the bench or floor when you bring your legs down. Don’t let your back arch!
- When you are holding on to the bench or whatever is above your head, make sure you don’t pull yourself up with your arms. Let your abs do the work!
- Make sure your feet are going up towards the ceiling and not towards or over your head.
Hope to see you add these to your weekly training.
I know you will love ’em! 🙂
