How to do a basic reverse curl

Your rating: None
Reverse curls give a good workout to the transverse abdominis, the deepest abdominal muscle that wraps around your waist like a corset, and the rectus abdominis, the stomach muscle that's responsible for the six-pack look.
What you'll need: 
Comfortable workout clothes
A floor mat
A bottle of fresh spring water
An airy environment
Lie on your back with your spine in neutral, arms by your sides, palms downward or you can keep your hands by the sides of your head.
Tuck your knees in towards your stomach and cross your ankles.
Tighten your abdominal muscles by gently pulling your navel in towards your spine.
Roll your knees towards your chest, then lower them down again.
Repeat for 20 minutes in-between one minute breaks.
As you learn to do the different exercises by heart, you'll be able to do them anywhere and at any time.
For all forms of exercise, it's really important that you spend time warming up properly before you start (and cooling down when you finish).
