How To Perform Exercise

Steps :

1.) Start by placing a flat bench in front of you, then rest one are on the bench while extending your legs out, one foot on top of the other, in front of you until your body is parallel with the floor.

2.) While keeping your arms rested on the bench, elevate your body through your pelvis as this will be your starting position.

3.) From there lower your pelvis down towards the floor until you feel a stretch in your abdominals.

4.) Hold onto this position for a count then return back to the starting position.

5.) Repeat for as many reps and sets as desired.

6.) Switch sides and repeat.

Notes :

- It is important to make sure that your legs stay extended out in front of you and arm stays rested on the bench.

- The only movement that you want to make is within your obliques and pelvis as they extend down towards the floor and back up with each rep.
