2. Contract your lower abdominal muscles to bring your legs up and off the ground by about 3 inches, this is the starting position
3. As you exhale, elevate your legs (keeping them straight) up to a 45-degree angle before lowering them back down to the starting position to complete one rep
4. Place your hands above your head or under your glutes if this helps you stabilize
