Weighted Bent-Leg V-Up

Bent-Leg V-Up with Med Ball on Yoga Mat

How to Modified V-Up

You Should Feel This: Abs

Equipment: Med Ball

Trainer: Ashley Steele


  1. Grab a weight and lie on your back with both legs extended. Hold the weight firmly with both hands and lift the arms above the head.

  2. Tighten your core to lift your shoulders off the floor. As the rib cage curls toward the hips, the body will move up and forward. Simultaneously flex both hips to fold the legs and bend the knees to 90°, at the end range of motion, both hands should reach below the heels.

  3. Pause briefly, holding the trunk flexed (folded) position. Lower into the starting position and repeat the movement for the specified amount of repetitions.

  4. You should feel this working your abs, obliques, hips, and core muscles.
