Follow the steps below that will teach you how to perform this exercise correctly so that you can get maximum results from it.
- Keep your abs braced, chin tucked and head in line with the rest of your spine. Use your abs to pull your ribs down, and tuck your tailbone under so that you don’t extend your lower back.
- Your upper hip and knee should both be bent at 90 degrees.
- Slide your arm in an arc overhead as you rotate at the upper back. Your thumb should touch the ground through almost the entire movement.
