Decline Reverse Crunch Twist
The focus of the Decline Reverse Crunch Twist is the lower section
of the Internal Obliques. Take another look at the direction of
pull of these muscles. The problem with doing Reverse
Crunches Twist is that you must lift the entire weight of your
legs and hips with the little used lower section of the abdominals,
while focusing on twisting. The Decline Reverse Crunch Twist is
perfect for this. Here we let the angle of the incline board help
with overcoming the weight of the hips and legs. This exercise is
also used to do high repetitions.
Start with your head facing down the decline and the AbMat™ under
your low back. Hold on to the sides of the board and roll your hips
toward the chest.
*This movement can be performed by fully contracting the abdominal
muscles and rolling all the way up, or by simply doing the lower
section of the movement, focusing on the lower 2-4 inch movement.
