Exercise Performance
Use a chair with sturdy arms, or parallel bars. Grip the chair with straight (or slightly kinked) arms. Brace your upper body, and lift your knees up. At the top, your thighs should be at least parallel to the ground (this is a bent leg hold). From here, straighten your legs until they are locked out straight. This may mean your feet dip down so that your legs are diagonal. That’s fine—just make sure those legs are locked out. Keep your feet and legs together and breathe normally.
