Move #1: Reverse Crunch
Works: lower and some upper abdominals
A. Lie face up on a mat or carpet with your knees bent. Raise one leg at a time, straightening each leg as much
as you can, so that the soles of your feet face the ceiling. Raise your head from the floor, placing your palms behind your head to provide support for your neck.
B. As you exhale, contract your abs to pull your legs about 30 degrees toward your head. Remember: Use your abs, not your leg muscles, when doing this exercise.
C. Inhale as you relax your abs to slowly return your legs to their original position. Do two sets of 15 reps.
