How to

Starting Position

1. Lie flat on your back on a mat or other comfortable surface with your knees bent, feet flat on the ground, and arms extended toward the ceiling. 2. Place your hands behind your head, with your elbows extended out to the sides. 3. Engage your core muscles by drawing your belly button toward your spine.

Proper Form

1. Raise your shoulder blades off the ground and curl your chin toward your chest. 2. At the same time, raise your legs off the ground, bending your knees and bringing them toward your chest. 3. Pause at the top of the movement and then slowly lower your upper body and legs back to the starting position.

Breathing Technique

1. Breath in as you raise your shoulder blades and legs off the ground. 2. Exhale as you lower your shoulder blades and legs back to the starting position.

Precautions

1. Avoid straining your neck by keeping your chin tucked in toward your chest. 2. Keep your core muscles engaged and your lower back pressed into the ground throughout the exercise. 3. Do not arch your back or use momentum to lift your upper body and legs.
