Exercise Performance
Lie on your back, with your knees well bent. Kick against the floor while pushing with your hands until your feet are up in the air. As you reach this position, place your hands on your lower back for support, whilst keeping your upper arms firmly on the floor. You will now be in a shoulderstand position, supported by your shoulders and upper back, as well as the backs of your upper arms. Your body should be locked straight. Keeping your torso as upright as possible, bend at the hips and knees until your knees touch your forehead. Extend your legs directly back up, until your body is back in the start position. Repeat.
