Focus on the top of the abs

Coach's Tips

It's the best workout to build up your upper abs, and is different from sit-ups. Try to keep your waist intact with the floor while doing the workout.

How to

Starting Position

1. Lie down on the floor with your feet flat on the ground, your knees bent, and your hands behind your head. 2. Make sure that your lower back is pressed firmly into the floor.

Proper Form

1. From the starting position, contract your abdominal muscles and lift your head and shoulders off the floor. 2. Hold for a few seconds, then slowly lower yourself back to the starting position.

Breathing Technique

1. When you lift your head and shoulders off the floor, exhale. 2. When you lower yourself back to the starting position, inhale.

Precautions

1. Keep your neck in a neutral position and avoid straining your neck. 2. Make sure that your lower back remains firmly pressed into the floor throughout the exercise.
