Target Muscle: Abs

V-Sit Holds Overview

The V-sit is an effective way to target the abs, obliques, and hip flexors alongside improving your core and trunk balance. Building your core strength, balance, and coordination can help you maintain good posture, avoid falls, and perform better at all physical activities everyday. 

How to Do It

  1. Contract your abs and core slowly and lift your legs up to a 45-degree angle with your torso.
  2. Reach your arms straight forward or reach up toward your shins as you are able. It's important to maintain good core posture and a strong spine and static shoulders throughout the movement. 
  3. Hold this V-shaped position for several seconds to begin. As you get stronger, hold the position longer.
  4. Return to your starting position slowly while continuing to keep your abs engaged and tight.
  5. Just before you reach the floor, stop and hold the position for a few seconds.
  6. Repeat this entire movement several times.

Tips on V-Sit Holds

  1. Don't hold your breath—continue to breathe deeply during the movement.
  2. Do not bend your shoulders during the performance of this exercise.
  3. Hold the V shape as long as you can
