Lying Hip Raise

The lying hip raise, also known as the reverse crunch, is a great exercise to target the lower abdominal muscles. This simple yet effective exercise can be done by people of all fitness levels, from beginners to advanced. By lifting your hips off the ground and pushing your feet towards the sky, you engage your lower abs to create a contraction that strengthens your core. The lying hip raise is a great addition to your abdominal workout routine, and can help you build a strong and defined midsection.

How to perform Lying Hip Raise

  1. Lay down on a mat with your face up and legs straight up in the air, with your feet pointing towards the sky. Keep your arms placed beside your torso to brace your position on the floor. This is your starting position.
  2. Exhale and engage your lower abs to lift your hips off the floor while pushing your feet up towards the sky. Make sure to keep your legs straight throughout the movement.
  3. Continue lifting your hips until your lower back is off the mat and your hips are fully extended. Hold this position for a moment, while squeezing your glutes and engaging your abs.
  4. Inhale and slowly lower your hips back down to the starting position, using control to avoid letting them drop suddenly.
  5. Repeat for the desired number of repetitions.
