How To Perform Exercise

Steps :

1.) Start off laying flat on your back on the ground and feet rested at a 90 degree angle on a bench.

2.) Hold a weight to your chest or extended out in front of you, then slowly elevate your shoulders off of the floor while your lower back keeps you positioned on the floor.

3.) As soon as you feel tension in your abs, squeeze and hold for a few seconds, release and return back to the starting position.

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