    Tighten your abs and raise your hips into the air as high as possible, pausing for a moment at the top before lowering back into the starting position.

Trainer’s Tips

  • Do not allow your back to round at any point.
  • Squeeze your abs and glutes to maintain stability throughout the entire exercise.
  • Press down forcefully with your forearms to make your abs work harder.
