The McGill Curlup is a variation of the traditional crunch exercise but it’s used to not only strengthen your abs, but also reduce the strain on your lower back by keeping the natural arch throughout the exercise.
Watch the MCGILL CURLUP: exercise demonstration video above.
To perform MCGILL CURLUP:
1. Get down on the floor and lie faceup with one leg straight and flat on the floor while the other leg is bent with your foot flat on the floor.
2. With your palms on the floor, place your hands under the natural arch of your lower back and raise your elbows off the floor.
3. Now under control, contract your abs and raise your shoulders and head off the floor without bending your lower back.
4. At the top of the movement, hold for 8 seconds, maintaining deep breaths.
5. Under control, reverse the movement and finish the reps with that leg.
6. Switch legs, and repeat.
