View Exercise Info

Exercise Cues:

  1. Lie on the floor face down and place your hands about 36 inches apart while holding your torso up at arms length. Tip: at the mid point of the movement your elbows should be at 90 degrees. 
  2. Then raise you feet and place them onto a surface that is higher than your chest. Tip: workout out the correct height so that you can complete the correct amount.
  3. Next, lower yourself downward until your chest almost touches the floor as you inhale.
  4. As you exhale press your upper body back up to the starting position while squeezing your chest.
  5. After a brief pause (1-2s) at the top position, you can begin to lower yourself downward again, continue this for as many sets and repetitions prescribed.

Cautions:

  1. Make sure you have only elevated your feet to a level that you can perform correctly.
  2. When lowering yourself down keep your core strong and activate your back so that you don’t arch your lower back, this could cause injury.
  3. Make sure that the surface you have rested your feet on is fully secure for you to perform the exercise safely.
  4. Keep your head in line with your torso so that you are not straining your neck muscles to help push yourself back up.
