How to do Incline Reverse Crunch

Start the exercise by lying with your face up and back on the incline bench, grabbing the sides of the bench for support. Bend your knees so to keep your hips at 90-degrees with the thighs. Brace your abs and lift your legs toward your chest so that your lower back is raised off the bench.
