In-Home Abdominal Exercises : The V-Sit Abdominal Exercise


Hello, I’m Kyle Brayer, and you’re next in-home
abdominal work out will be the V-sit. The V-sit is performed on a mat. Kerry here is
sitting on her glutes, and she’s going to start by putting her fingers pointing toward
her toes, with her hands flat on the mat. She’s going to have her elbows locked out
for a starting position, and her feet flat on the mat. And what she’s going to do is
she’s going to bend her elbows and lean back with her upper body, and extend her legs straight
out. This is the first position. And then she’s going to bend her knees and push back
up, this is the positive position. So, out and in, and out and in, and go ahead and take
a break. So, this exercise is isolating both the upper abdominal region and the lower abdominal
region. The upper abdominal region is worked with the top part of the torso leaning back,
the lower with the legs extended. So, Kerry, one more time; out and back in. She’s making
sure that every time she comes up, she’s exhaling through her mouth, and every time she leans
back, she breathes in through her nose. Alright, and that’s good. And that is the V-sit.
