According to Livestrong, reverse crunches are performed with your torso remaining still, allowing your legs and hips to do the work to help prevent back pain and further injury. Lie on your back on the floor or on an exercise mat with your legs bent and back of your feet flat on the floor. Slowly lift your buttocks off the floor, maintaining bent legs, and curl your knees toward your chest. Be careful not to bring your knees too close to your chest to prevent lower back strain.For more information about best crunches for a bad back. Read more on www.livestrong.com.
