Modified V Sit

*Always check with a doctor prior to beginning a new workout or health regimen

Unlike a full V-sit, where your legs are fully extended in front of you, this move asks you to bend your knees in toward your chest as you come up. It's a good alternative for people with tight hamstrings.  

  • Lie faceup with knees bent in front of you, feet flat on floor, arms extended by sides.
  • Simultaneously crunch upper body off floor, reaching arms toward toes, as you bend knees in toward chest, forming a V shape with your thighs and torso.
  • Hold for one count; release.
