V Ups Exercise
- All you really need for equipment is a gym mat. Although you can do this exercise on any level surface, your back will appreciate the added cushion of the pad. As you progress to more advanced variations of this exercise to include resistance you may want a pair of gym gloves. (I'm wearing the original GymPaws Lifting Grips in this video).
- Sit down with your feet flat on the floor and the palm of your hands flat on the floor behind you.
- Start the movement by retracting your shoulder blades (pull em down and back) as you lean back and extend your legs to form a plank position.
- Contract the abs to bring your knees up towards the chest and return to the starting position without allowing your feet to touch the floor.
