Starting Position

  • lay your back onto a fitness mat or the ground
  • the head is lying on it, too
  • stretch out the arms sideways and lay them down, they will give u stability
  • bend the legs up to 90 degrees and let them hover across the ground

Correct Execution

  • turn the lower body to the side as much as you can by rotating the hip around the body axis
  • keep the knees bent and the upper back remains on the floor
  • do not rest the legs on the ground, go on to the other side right away
  • repeat the ab exercise several times

tip for the workout

  • the exercise becomes more difficult, if you stretch out the legs a bit more
