Raise legs and place heels in loops with soles contacting handles (or ankles through loops as shown). Extend legs out straight. Sit up and place hands on floor to sides at desired distance from suspension trainer. Raise hips from floor, supporting upper body with arms.

Execution

Pull hips back while flexing spine in C shape. Raise hips up high by straightening spine and hips until straight.

Comments

See Suspended Supine Feet Mount/Dismount. Erector Spinae is exercised during spinal extension, whereas, Abdominals are exercised during spinal flexion. See Suspended Pull Through for Rectus Abdominis.
