Set-up: Begin by lying on your back on a lightly cushioned surface with legs extended.
Movement: Initiate the movement by contracting your abdominals, and using your triceps to drive through your elbows. As your palms achieve solid contact with the ground, press through your hands and drive through your ams until your torso is perpendicular to the ground. Return to the start position under control.
Emphasis: If the exercise is too difficult, start by holding yourself in the end position and focusing on the contraction in your triceps.
