Setup instructions

1) Start with a low anchor point on one side of the cable machine and load the appropriate weight.

2) Lie on the floor and place both feet through the handles.

Perform instructions

1) Curl up by tightening the core - come all the way up so you're balancing on your tailbone. As you do this, lift your knees towards your chest - have a near 90 degree angle in the knees. Pause, 'crunch' and breathe out in the centre.

2) Now, gently lower yourself back to the starting position.

3) Repeat.
