- Secure your feet and lay back on the floor. Your knees should be bent. Hold a weight with both hands to your chest. This will be your starting position.
- Initiate the movement by flexing the hips and spine to raise your torso up from the ground.
- As you move up, press the weight up so that it is above your head at the top of the movement.
- Return the weight to your chest as you reverse the sit-up motion, ensuring not to go all the way down to the floor.
