The Perfect V-Up DOES Exist!
3 rounds:

Gymnastics Dead Bug
⁃ 5 reps with 5 second hold at lowest position
⁃ Start in deadbug position (hands and feet in air, low back pressed firmly into the ground
⁃ Lower legs (straight, together, squeezed), keeping your palms on your quads
⁃ Hold in YOUR BEST bottom position for 5 seconds
⁃ This is SLOW and CONTROLLED

Alternating Leg V-Up
⁃ 20 total reps
⁃ Legs stay straight
⁃ Opposite hand reaches for the toe/shoe laces/ankle/shin of the opposite leg
⁃ Try to achieve a “hollow” position with your rib cage at the top (when hand touches the toe)

Hip Dips
⁃ 10 total reps
⁃ Goal: keep the hips low in the center plank, and maintain a tight core throughout (never let your hips “sag” to the ground”)
⁃ Staying TIGHT is more important than a greater range of motion!
