Benefits
For a power abdominal workout, try a V Sit-up. With a wall to provide leg support, you can reach higher and push your abs harder than you can in a standard floor sit-up. Remember not to thump and flail—you want to go slow and controlled.

Starting Position
Lie on your back on the floor with your feet resting on a wall such that your legs are at a 45-degree angle to the floor. Flex your feet and rest only your heels on the wall. Your legs should be straight and your arms should be extended overhead.

Exercise
1. From the starting position, begin by bringing your arms up and forward as you tuck your chin down toward your chest. Engaging your abs and exhaling as you lift, bring your upper body off the floor as your arms come forward. Keeping your heels on the wall, try to touch your toes at the top of your lift.
2. Slowly uncurl and lower your upper body back down to the floor, bringing your arms back overhead as you lower down. Keep your chin toward your chest until your shoulders are touching the floor. Repeat for a full set of 20 V Sit-ups.
