V-sit Twist

v-sit twist

Technique

Start in a seated position, curl up and bring your knees in so you almost reaches your toes. Contract abs and keep them tight, lift chest up and lengthen the spine. Imagine making a “V” using your thighs and upper body. Hold the position and rotate your upper body from side to side holding a ball with straight arms. Count one repetition when you have twisted once to each side.

Tips

Imagine “tucking the tail” to get into position. Focus on strict control, move slowly and aim to lift your legs up to a 45-degree angle.

Alternatives

Keep feet on ground for more support, lift legs up and straighten them to make the exercise more challenging.
