Step-by-step instructions

1. Set up as you would for a V-up, but hold a weight plate with both hands overhead. (It should be parallel with the floor in the down position). Now use your back muscles to pull the weight over your chest while you raise your legs up and toward your face, stopping just short of your arms. Lower your arms and legs back down, stopping a few inches short of the floor.
