I recently realized I've been doing reverse crunches wrong which lead me to do some research on how to do them correctly.
I looked this up on youtube and I couldn't find an answer because it seems like everyone does it differently. Which one is the right way to do it?
See the example belows:
- Example 1 : To me this lady does like a bit of leg raise and at the end the actual reverse crunch
- Example 2 : This guy instead seem to me more focused on bringing his knees towards his chest rather than moving his pelvis off the ground.
- Example 3 : This to me seem closer to what I think it's correct, although I think the lady gets a bit of energy when lifting her pelvis off the floor by raising the legs at the beginning of the repetion.
- Example 4 : At 2:50 I think this is actually the right technique (or at least someone would need to achieve). The lady isn't putting her hands on the ground, the lifting of the pelvis is really slow and controlled, and finally there's no so much swinging of the legs around.
Is it just me? I personally see a lot of difference among these techniques.
Also the follow up question, I can't really manage to lift my pelvis like in 4, so what could be a sequence of exercises that would allow me, on the long run, to achieve a similar form at least.
