General And Specifics

  • in this exercise, your partner is your training weight
  • your partner should be able to hold the body in one line during the exercise
  • make sure you cannot slip away

Starting Position

  • lay on the ground of a fitness mat
  • raise your legs to 60 degrees, so that your partner can lean against your soles with the front of his or her upper body
  • the partner braces the abs
  • position your feet in the middle of your partner's abs
  • for more stability, the partner open the legs a bit

Correct Execution

  • slowly bend both knees, your partner comes closer
  • your thighs can touch your abs
  • do not let the knees wander outwards, they have to be in a line with your feet
  • invert the motion and push your partner back to the starting position
  • do not stretch out the legs completely, this preserves the knee joints
  • do several reps of the leg exercise
