Target Area: Core
Equipment: Not required
- Lie flat on your back on the floor with your arms and legs extended straight.
- Bend at the waist, while simultaneously raising your legs, torso and arms off the ground. Ensure you are not pulling your neck upwards, but rather lifting your entire torso upwards.
- The legs should be extended and lifted at approximately a 35-45 degree angle from the floor and the arms should be extended and parallel to your legs. The upper torso should be off the floor.
- Slowly lower your arms and legs back to the starting position.
- This is one repetition.
Slow down the exercise and hold your position at the top so you are engaging your core for longer.
Bend your knees rather than having them straight out.
