  • Lie facing up, with your arms at 45˚ to your body and your legs together.
  • Use your core to lift your legs and lower back off the floor and, in a controlled manner, bring your legs over your head till your toes touch the floor.
  • Hold for ten seconds, then bring your legs slowly back to the start.
