How To Do A V Up

Instructional Video


Written Instructions

  1. Lay flat on your back with arms and legs stretched out.
  2. Bracing our core, fire upwards so that your legs and arms come towards one another, both remaining straight.
  3. Once your arms and legs are directly above you and close to one another, squeeze your core and reach your hands up to your toes for an added burn.
  4. Gently lower your arms and legs back down to the floor, keeping them straight, stop a few inches off of the floor to keep tension in your core. 


If you're struggling with the traditional V-Up, bend your legs to around 90 degrees. Once you’ve fired your arms and legs together, lower the back down, keeping your legs bent, stopping just before your feet reach the floor and repeat.


Looking for more of a flamin' challenge? Try doing v ups with toe touches, adding in that toe touch can really push you and help to get your sweat on.
