1. Reverse Crunch
- Lie on your back on the floor, with your legs fully extended out in front of you and arms straight in air, as you see here.
- Roll your knees into your chest, and then quickly press them up straight in the air.
- Bring your legs back down to that starting position (using the same motion, but in reverse). That’s one rep.
Basso says: “People do traditional crunches, which end up becoming ‘neck-ups.’ It leads to neck pain rather working your abs. This ab exercise makes it easier to stabilize your upper back and neck.”
