Roll to V-Up
To do the Roll to V-Up, lie on your back with your legs out straight and about hip-width apart. Reach your arms up toward the ceiling NOT back overhead.
Then roll up. Think about almost rolling each vertebrae up to make sure you don’t engage your low back. Roll up to a seated position and sit up nice and tall. You can reach your hands toward your toes or up overhead.
Roll back down so that your lower, and even the bottom of your mid-back, hit the ground, but keep your shoulder blades up. As you roll down, lift your legs up slightly off the ground.
Once your low back is back on the ground and your legs are up, “v up” reaching up toward your toes as you lift your legs toward your hands. Lower your legs back down and roll all the way back down before repeating the roll up then the v-up.
