V line, lower ab exercise tutorial

Here are the exercises that correlate with the V line ab workout found here.  Remember to stretch properly before working out!

Lie on your back with your hands by your side, keep your legs straight and raise them to a 90 degree angle with your body.  Then slowly lower your legs to the right, don’t let them touch the ground, hold for a second and then bring them back up and center.  Then do the same to the left side.

Get in a standard plank position but take your right leg and bring it up as close to your right elbow as possible.  Keep your left leg straight and your body parallel to the floor.  Return to normal plank position and then bring your left knee to your left elbow.

Lie flat on the ground, contract your abs so you raise your torso off the ground to a 45 degree angle, while also lifting your legs to a 45 degree angle.  Your legs and torso should make a 90 degree angle with each other.  Hold for a second and then return to the ground.

For Oblique V ups, lie flat on your back, lift your legs straight until they make a 90 degree angle with the ground.  Try to touch your toes with your right hand, relax so your back and legs return to the ground, repeat with your left hand.

Lie flat on your back and bring your knees up, keeping your feet on the ground to a regular sit up position.  Let both knees fall to the right and begin doing crunches.  Look up at the ceiling and don’t pull on your neck, switch your legs to the other side half way through the set.

Lie flat on your back and bring your knees up so you are in normal sit up position, lift your torso off the ground so that it is at a 45 degree angle from the ground (essentially you are in a crunch position) Raise your hands straight in front of you with your palms together. Move both arms across your body to the left as far as you can go, twisting your abs and shoulder blades with them.  Then move your hands back in front of you and then over to the right while remaining in the crunch position.

For Raised Leg Russian Twists, this is the same thing but now you will lift your feet off the ground and extend them straight in front of you, much like you were in the V ups.
