Band V Up instructions
Step-by-step instructions
1
Lie down on a mat on your back, placing a resistance band around your ankles and holding the other end of the band with both hands over your head.
2
Keep your legs and arms straight and lift them together so that your body forms a 'V' shape.
3
Try to touch your hands to your feet in the top position, but if you can't, just reach as far as you can without bending your knees.
4
At no point should your lower back come off the floor. If it does, don't lift your legs as high.
5
Lower your legs and arms back down in a controlled fashion and repeat for the programmed number of reps.
