      The V-up or Pike consists of pulling the heels off the floor while contracting the core very strongly and raising the upper body off the floor at the same time. At the top position there will be a strong contraction of the abs while the body forms a “V”. The back will be flat, shoulders shouldn’t be elevated and all parts of the movement will be controlled.

      If you are unable to keep your legs straight due to tight hamstrings you may want to switch to Bent Knee V-Ups
