Spotlight Core Sculpting Exercise: Reverse Crunch & Press
This move works your chest, triceps, abs and your hip flexors, making it particularly good for people who want to tighten up their lower tummy.
Add this move to your next workout to aim for 2-3 sets of 50 seconds intervals.
- Keep your abs pulled into your stomach — your lower back should not be lifting off the floor. If it does, try doing the exercise one leg at a time.
- Don't rest your elbows on the floor.
- Keep a soft bend in your elbows and the weights above your chest.
- Try not to rest your feet on the floor (but if your lower back is arching, rest them and/or switch to the alternating single leg variation).
