Modified V-Up
From: FM 7-22 October 2012


The starting position for this exercise is the supine position with the arms sideward or at 45 degrees to the body (according to profile limitations). Palms are downward and knees are bent at 90 degrees with the feet flat on the floor. The head may be on the ground or elevated 1-2 inches off the ground according to profile limitations. The Soldier assumes the starting position as in the V-up, using the hands as needed to lower the body to the ground. The head is elevated while the back and feet are flat on the ground. On counts 1 and 3, the Soldier lifts the feet off the ground, pulling the knees toward the chest. Then the Soldier lowers the feet to the ground, returning to the starting position on counts 2 and 4 (refer to Figure 6-86). Over time, the Soldier gradually increases the range of motion and works to perform the V-up to standard.
