V is for V Up

A “V Up” is a somewhat advanced core strengthening exercise. It can be modified by lifting only one leg at a time (still super hard), or modified further by bending both knees as you draw the legs in, as opposed to keeping the legs straight (better option for those new to exercise– but trust me, your abs will still quiver)!

Step 1: Lay on the ground, belly facing up. Reach your arms long overhead and your legs long away from you. Point your toes.

Step 2: Lift your upper and lower body in tandem to rise up to seated. Reach your hands toward your shins. Hold momentarily.

Resist gravity and lower back to starting position, with control.

“V” is for V Up.
Do 1-minute of this move…
