Reading Robertson/Cressey and that Hips article in particular, among others, is what's got me thinking about this in the first place.

I've been considering programming reverse crunches since they don't require the arms so that people with shoulder/wrist injuries can do them, or they might fit nicely in a circuit like an AMRAP where there might already be significant grip work and I'm not aiming to have grip fatigue limit total work.

They also seem to be a logical scaled movement for those who don't yet have the strength to lift their hips through the range of motion required for a decent knees to elbows rep.
