Foam Roller Incline Reverse Crunch

How To Do A Foam Roller Incline Reverse Crunch Exercise Demonstration Video and Guide

The Foam Roller Incline Reverse Crunch is a great exercise that targets your lower abs.

Since this is completed on a decline sit up bench, it is also referred to as the decline reverse crunch.

Holding a foam roller between your hamstrings and calves helps activate your hamstrings and deactivate the usage of your hip flexors.

By doing this, it helps make your abs work harder. 

To get started:

  1. Lie down, face up on an decline sit up bench, or make your own sit up bench by placing one end of an incline bench on top of a step like you see in this video.
  2. To keep your legs in proper position, squeeze a foam roller between your hamstrings and calves.
  3. Grab the bench handle behind your head, contract your abs, and raise your hips and lower back to initiate the crunch towards your chest.
  4. Under control, lower your legs back to the starting position, until your heels come close to touching the floor.
  5. Repeat.
