Reverse Crunch

As most of you know, I’ve had such a difficult time managing the weight loss myself…so I called in the BIG GUNS! David, from Chape has been helping me so much! Seriously, this guy is AWESOME! So I wanted to share one of his exercises that continues to baffle me. It’s a good one, for sure..but I still can’t get up to 15! Give it a try!

Chape Personal Trainer

The Reverse Crunch is the opposite movement of a Sit-up, which means: we will approach our pelvis to our breastbone contracting the abdominal muscles. This exercise strengthens your abs and causes less strain on your back and neck than a regular crunch.

Lie on your back and extend your arms out to the side. Raise your knees and feet so they create a 90-degree angle.

Inverted abs 1

Exhale and contract your abs lifting your hips off the floor with control; your knees will move toward your head. Try to keep your knees at a right angle.

Inverted abs 3

Inhale and slowly return to starting position. Don´t swing your legs up and down. Focus on your abs and try to lift your hips off the ground.
