X-body V-up

The X-body V-up is a bodyweight abdominal exercise performed on the floor. It is similar to the popular V-up exercise, but is performed with the arms and legs out wide in an X-shape. It primarily targets the muscles of the rectus abdominis, or “six-pack” muscles. It can be performed for reps or time, either as part of an ab-focused workout or as a component of a circuit workout.
