How to do Cable Reverse Crunch

Start the exercise by sitting down on an exercise mat or a flat bench, with your feet positioned toward the cable machine. After attaching the cable to the ankle strap, lie down and lift your legs so that they make a 90-degree angle with your knees. Make sure that the cable is in line with your legs. You can keep them aligned by adjusting the height of the pulley.

Tips

  • Make sure to bring the legs back to the starting position in a controlled manner so that you can keep tension on the abs even in the resting position.
  • You may keep your hands behind your head during the exercise to specifically target your abdominal muscles.
