Swiss Ball Reverse Crunch

Swiss Ball Reverse Crunch

*Always check with a doctor prior to beginning a new workout or health regimen

This exercise targets your transverse (or deep) abdominals. Make sure the ball is well inflated so that your back is not caving in as you crunch.  

  • Place ball in front of a wall or sturdy object that you can hold onto for support, like the end of a bench.
  • Lie faceup on ball, with lower back on its center, legs lifted and slightly bent in front of you.
  • Hold onto wall behind you for support as you crunch lower body up, lifting hips off ball and legs toward ceiling.
  • Pause, then lower hips and legs back to start position.
