Bottoms Up Guide

Main Muscle: Abdominals

  1. Begin by lying on your back on the ground. Your legs should be straight and your arms at your side. This will be your starting position.
  2. To perform the movement, tuck the knees toward your chest by flexing the hips and knees. Following this, extend your legs directly above you so that they are perpendicular to the ground. Rotate and elevate your pelvis to raise your glutes from the floor.
  3. After a brief pause, return to the starting position.

May 23, 2015 8:14 PM: Once again...I was always inspired by the simplicity of Greg's ab exercises. I've incorporated this exercise as a part of my workout. I started out by just trying. Then I was ending my workouts with trying over and over again. I'm at a point where I'm pretty good at doing this with my hands...+See More

Yep, I do it the same way as RIRIPPED. Less rocking, more controlled movement. I never let my feet hit the floor; keeps more tension on the abs:-)

Feb 2, 2015 9:37 AM: I lay in a bench and put my hands over my head holding onto the bench. I then raise my knees toward my head, push my feet up toward the ceiling then do the reverse holding my feet out in the starting position. Definitely have to work up to this exercise.

Jan 13, 2015 9:04 AM: This is a great exercise although I perform mine with less rocking motion and a bit slower. I prefer to grasp overhead onto the legs of a bench or machine to stop me from raising my upper back off of the floor on the downward movement.

At most this is a isometric contraction and most of the work is done by the rotator cuffs. All goes back to...+See More
