Everyone has heard of the basic abdominal crunch. In fact, most people are more familiar with it than they are with all other abdominal workouts. But not everyone has heard of the Reverse Crunch. This routine is one of a number of abdominal workouts that could prove helpful to individuals who are acutely concerned with their need to tone their lower abdominal muscles. Consider how the Reverse Crunch is performed.
If you wish to perform a set of Reverse Crunches, begin by getting into an otherwise normal crunch position. Lie flat on your back with your feet also flat on the ground and your knees bent. Then, placing your hands on your head or chest, do not raise your upper body but, instead, raise your lower body. Bend your legs at your hips and draw your thighs upward and backward while keeping your knees at a forty-five degree angle. Once your thighs are vertical, slowly lower them back down again, preparing yourself to perform even more Reverse Crunch sets. As we said earlier, abdominal workouts such as the Reverse Crunch often do not get as much attention as their counterparts, but do not let that fool you into thinking that they aren’t worth doing.
