How to Reverse Hip Lift
You Should Feel This: Abs
Exercise Families: Trunk Flexion
Trainer: Ashley Steele
Lie on a bench with your hips and knees extended out at 45 degrees. Use your hands to grab the bench behind your head.
Pull your legs toward your chest by tilting your pelvis until your tailbone lifts off the bench. Try to touch the ceiling with your toes.
Lower back down into the starting position and continue for the specified amount of time.
Prevent your hip muscles from being overactive by contracting your core before lifting your hips off the bench. Be sure to engage your abdominals throughout the movement.
You should feel this working your abdominal muscles and hip flexors.
