- Start by lying down with your arms by your sides. Raise your legs so your thighs are perpendicular to the floor and your knees are bent at a 90-degree angle. This is the starting position.
- Breathe out and contract your abs to bring your knees up toward your chest and raise your hips off the floor.
- Pause for a moment, then lower back down to the starting position, without allowing your lower back to arch or lose contact with the floor.
This is one Reverse Crunch. Complete the number of recommended reps.

Hey! Jenn here, the creator of A Dash of Macros!
I have been exactly where you are, struggling to lose the unwanted weight. Struggling to find anything that actually works to lose the weight and keep it off. Trying to fight the aging process, while watching my metabolism slow down, my love handles and lower mid section expand.
I have tried all those fad diets and tested all of the different nutrition approaches. From Low Carb to Low Fat, Keto to Whole 30, Intermittent Fasting to Intuitive Eating, and everything in between.
If you have ever tried any of these restrictive diets before, you understand how hard they can be to follow, how restrictive they can be, and how much time and energy they take. Leaving you feeling hungry, deprived, irritable, and lacking energy. Making them impossible to stick with.
If you somehow stuck to those diets and lost the weight, you eventually put that weight back on. Why? Because they are fad diets, they are not sustainable lifestyles. They are a quick fix but don’t withstand our busy lives.
