Coach's Tips

It's a workout that targets your abs by alternating your knees with your elbows!

How to

Starting Position

1. Begin standing with your feet together, your core engaged, and your arms extended in front of you at shoulder height. 2. Lift one foot off the ground and move it to the side of the other, so that your feet are staggered. 3. Bend your knees and lower your hips into a squat position.

Proper Form

1. Begin the movement by driving your elbows up to the sky and bringing your knees up towards your elbows. 2. Once your knees are close to your elbows, quickly reverse the motion and lower your feet back to the starting position. 3. Repeat the movement for the desired number of repetitions.

Breathing Technique

1. Exhale as you bring your knees up towards your elbows. 2. Inhale as you lower your feet back to the starting position.

Precautions

1. Keep your core engaged and your back straight throughout the movement. 2. Avoid arching your back as you bring your knees up. 3. Avoid jerking or bouncing to help your knees reach the elbows. 4. Keep your feet together and land softly when you lower your feet back to the starting position.
