repetitions of lower abs exercise 'reverse curls ups'
by: Sarah says:

Hello Gary,
I have just re-found your question, so apologies for this long overdue reply!
To clarify:
For every 60 seconds lying passively backwards over the BackBlock you about half a minute of 'knees rocking' and then you do 15 'reverse curls ups' (I dont think there is anywhere where I have said 5). This means 15 excursions back and forth, knees to chin and back to thighs vertical.
However, in each session, I like you to repeat the 3 steps three times. So, by the end of the session you have in fact completed 45 reverse curl ups.
Hope this overdue advice helps.
