Starting PositionExecution

Starting Position

  • lay your back on the ground or a fitness mat
  • lift your legs, until they are vertical to the ground
  • knees are slightly bent
  • the feet are together
  • stretch out your arms above your head

Correct Execution

  • brace your abs
  • lift head and shoulders, your shoulder blades lift off the ground, your lower back remains on the floor
  • now try to touch the opposite foot with one hand (target: obliques) or the tiptoes with both hands
  • afterwards, lower the upper body slowly, but do not completely rest it on the ground
  • go over to the next rep

tips for the workout

  1. if you only use one leg, the ab exercise becomes easier
  2. if holding your legs up is too difficult for you, you can lay in front of a wall and lean the heels against it
