1.Lie on the ground with your legs straight and feet together. Bring both arms overhead and rest them beside your ears.
2.Simultaneously, lift your legs and torso off the ground. Bring your arms forward and reach for your ankles as you balance on your hips. Reverse the movement and return to the starting position.
OPTION: lift opposite arm/leg, one side at a time to ease any lower back stress. As you gain strength, try both arms/legs at one time.
Avoid rounding your back. Instead, keep the chest lifted and spin flat throughout the movement.
