Move Targets: Biceps and Core
Step 1: Begin by sitting down so you can lock your heels into the straps like Jean has done here. The ball of your foot should press against the handle. Lie back and press your hands into the floor at your side as you squeeze the glutes, lifting the hips off the floor.
Step 2: Flex the feet, exhale and pull the heels in close to the hips. Do not drop the hips down to accommodate the curl.
Step 3: Inhale and extend the legs back to the starting position. If this is too difficult, try releasing one foot from the strap and placing it on the floor so you can work on one at a time.
