Reverse Reach on Bench

How to Reverse Reach

You Should Feel This: Abs

Equipment: Bench

Trainer: Ashley Steele


  1. Use your hands to grab the bench behind your head with your hips and knees bent 90-degrees. Pull your knees toward your chest by tilting your pelvis until your tailbone lifts off the bench.

  2. Squeeze your abs to lift your hips off the bench towards the sky. Hold the up position for 1 - 2 seconds before returning to the starting position.

  3. Pulse up and down lifting from the bench to the ceiling with control for the specified amount of reps.

  4. Prevent the hip muscles from being overactive by contracting your core before lifting your hips off the bench. Be sure to tighten your abdominals throughout the movement.

  5. You should feel this working your abs, obliques, core, and hips.
