Check Points:
  • At the starting position, tighten the abdominal muscles to tilt the pelvis and the lower back toward the ground.
  • On counts 1 and 3, the knees and trunk are straight with the head aligned with the trunk.
  • On counts 2 and 4, lower the legs to the ground in a controlled manner so as not to injure the feet.
