V-sit

v-sit

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.

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

Reach arms up toward sky to make the exercise more challenging. Place hands on the ground or grab your legs for more support.

More info

Works mainly rectus abdominis.
