Back to Exercises

Difficulty: Hard

Impact Level: Normal

Target Body Parts: abs


For this isometric core exercise, start sitting down with your upper body upright and your legs bent up in towards your hips, feet on the floor. Then brace your abs, core and lower back and then lean back so that your spine is at a 45 degree angle. At the same time lift your feet up so they are at the same height as your knees, shins parallel to the floor. Your arms should be hovering off the floor by your hips to help you balance. Hold this top position for the required duration of the exercise.
