- Sit down on the end of a bench with feet together. Firmly grip the bench on both sides, ensuring your fingers are facing outwards. Lean back slightly so that your abdominals are engaged and you are balancing on your sit bones. Keeping your feet together, raise them off the floor and extend your legs slightly. This is your starting position.
- Inhale. Extend your knees outwards and, at the same time, lean your torso backwards, ensuring that your abdominals remain engaged.
