#2 Reverse Crunch
The reverse crunch not only activates the core but also targets the back, hips and the spine. This exercise does not require fancy gym equipment and could be performed with only your body weight.
Step 1: Lie on the floor in a supine position with fully extended arms and legs. Place the arms on the side parallel to the ground, which should be stationary during the entire duration of the exercise.
Step 2: Lift your legs such that the thighs are almost perpendicular to the torso. Bend your knees such that they almost touch the chest.
Step 3: Hold the contraction for a moment and return to the initial position.
Perform the exercise for the recommended number of times.
Important tips: Focus on a smooth motion and avoid any unnecessary jerks while performing this motion. Perform this exercise with a weighted vest for added resistance and improved customisability.
