Exercise Video: Straight Leg Reverse Crunch

 

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…

  1. 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!
  2. 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!
  3. 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! 🙂
