This exercise targets your abs, obliques, and lower back. This exercise is a little tricky, especially at first, so be patient with yourself. Concentrate on keeping your abdominal muscles strong throughout the exercise, and stop if anything (especially your back) hurts.
How To Do It:
- Sit on your mat with your knees bent, your feet flat on the floor, and your arms by your sides.
- Keep your knees bent at you lift your feet off the mat until your skins are nearly parallel to to floor and lean your torso back 45 degrees into a V-Sit. Extend your arms forward.
- Here is where it gets tricky: slowly roll down your spine onto you left side, extending your legs and reaching your arms overhead with your palms facing one another.
- Slowly reverse the motion to return into a V-Sit. Repeat on the right hand side to complete 1 rep.
- Do 2 sets of 10 reps.
