Lie down on the floor: Start by lying flat on your back on the floor or an exercise mat. Extend your legs and arms fully.
Lift your legs and weight plate: Raise your legs off the ground while keeping them straight. At the same time, hold the weight plate with both hands and lift it towards the ceiling.
Engage your core: As you lift your legs and weight plate, engage your core muscles by drawing your belly button towards your spine. This will help stabilize your body and protect your lower back.
Reach for your toes: Simultaneously, reach your hands and the weight plate towards your toes. Try to lift your upper body off the ground while keeping your core engaged.
Lower your body: Slowly lower your legs and weight plate back to the starting position, keeping your core engaged throughout the movement. Repeat the exercise for the desired number of repetitions.
Breathing: Remember to breathe naturally throughout the exercise. Exhale as you reach for your toes and inhale as you lower your body.
