How to perform V ups properly:

  • Lie flat on the floor with the lower back pressed into the ground and arms extended behind your legs.
  • The back of the shoulders should touch the floor and the palms face the ceiling.
  • Keep the feet together and the toes pointed at the ceiling.
  • In one movement lift the legs up keeping them straight and raise the upper body of the floor reaching for the toes with your hands.
  • Engage and squeeze the abdominal muscles as you reach for your toes.
  • Slowly lower the body back down to the starting position.
