Correct Execution

  • look upwards
  • make sure that the motion comes from the arms, not from the abs
  • your bottom sticks to the ground
  • you can move until the whole torso is supported only by your arms
  • the angle between upper arms and the ground has to remain as small as possible
  • hold the position shortly, come back to the starting position and repeat the exercise
