Lie on your back on the floor with your legs bent and your feet flat on the floor. Place your hands either across your chest or place them on the sides of your head. Do not interlock your fingers, because this will lead to a tendency to pull on the neck. Now, bend at your waist and pull your shoulder blades off the floor by using your abdominal muscles. Continue this until your torso is almost straight up and then slowly lower your body back to the starting position.
It may be helpful to have someone hold your feet down or you can place a heavy object on your feet to hold them in place. If you are a more advanced athlete you can hold a weight across your chest to add resistance to this movement.
