How to Do V-Ups

The Secret to Better Abs? This Exercise

Ready to tighten your tummy, strengthen your core, and flatten your abs? This no-equipment bodyweight exercise will take you to the next level (and though challenging, this move is super simple).

Here's how to do a V-up, which works the abs and even helps get to the lower parts of the rectus abdominis (aka your lower belly).

  • Lie face up with arms and legs extended and resting on the floor.
  • Keep abs tight and lift hands and feet to meet over torso.
  • Lower your arms and legs toward the floor to complete one rep.
  • If this variation is too difficult, bend the knees.
  • Do as many reps as you can for one minute.
