Exercise: "Reverse Crunches (abs)" by Sruthan Wants Abs

More info / tips / proper technique:

Lie on your back with legs up -- thighs perpendicular to the floor and knees at a right-angle so that your calves are parallel to the floor. Your can place your hands at your sides on the floor palms down, or cupped lightly behind your ears. Raise your shoulders slightly off the ground to firm up your abs.

Keeping your knees at the 90 degree angle, use your lower abs to pull your knees toward your chest, bending at the hips. Your hips should also raise up off the ground. Hold the ab muscle contraction at the top of the movement for a count of two, then slowly lower back toward starting position allowing your hips to touch only lightly at the bottom. Do not rest the weight of your legs at the bottom of the movement -- you want to keep a constant tension of your abs throughout all reps.
