How To Perform Exercise

Steps :

1.) Start by laying on the floor with your legs straight out in front of you with one foot on top of the other along with one arm pointed up towards the ceiling and the other hand used to stabilize your head.

2.) Once in position, lift your shoulders off of the floor until you feel a contraction in your abs, hold for a few seconds then return back to the starting position.

3.) Repeat for as many reps and sets desired and then switch with the opposite foot and extended arm.

Tips :

1.) Make sure you are squeezing with your abs and not pushing up on your neck
