Begin by lying on the floor with both of your legs bent at a 90-degree angle. Engage your glute and core muscles, using them to bring your hips upwards. Your goal end-position is to have a straight line from your knees down to your head. Hold the position for about five seconds before slowly lowering back down to the ground.
