Starting Position

  • lay your chest on a table or a weight bench
  • adhere tight to the leading end of the table
  • the hips protrude the other edge of the table and are moveable
  • stretch out your legs and put the tiptoes to the ground

Correct Execution

  • keep the body stable and guide the stretched out legs up until they are parallel to the ground
  • this is a slow motion, do not gain momentum
  • avoid a hollow-back, otherwise your lumbar spine is strained too much
  • let the feet sink down again, but do not rest them on the ground
  • repeat the exercise several times for an effective strength workout

tip for the workout

  • to make the exercise more difficult, you can clamp a dumbbell between your lower legs
