The V-sit is an explosive core exercise that challenges the abdominals and quads. It requires optimal hamstring flexibility to perform skillfully.
Lie on your back with arms overhead. Engage the core, and rapidly bring the hands to the feet, keeping the arms and legs straight. Return under control and repeat.
As well as being an excellent whole body core exercise, this movement is also a gymnastic-specific drill that lays the foundation for the high levels of control required in numerous jumps and rolls. As a fitness exercise, it works the abdominals through a larger range of motion compared to traditional exercises.
