Move of the Month - V-Sits or V-Holds

1. Begin by sitting on a gym mat or on the floor (recommend that you use a mat  though, the floor gets really hard in a hurry).

2. With your arms fully extended in front of you (make sure you’ve got your core tight, chest up high and shoulders back), lean back slightly until you feel your core contract entirely.

3. Once you feel your core tighten, lift your feet off the ground and extend your legs.  Make sure you maintain a strong, tight core.  Do not allow your back to round.  Your body should look like the letter V.  Hold that position for 30 seconds.
