Lie back on the floor pad grasping a weight plate with both hands above your chest with your arms fully extended. The plate should be parallel to your body.
Your knees should be slightly bent. Raise your head just slightly. Raise your upper body in a sit-up movement until your back is almost vertical keeping your arms fully extended and the weight plate up over your head.
Pause for a one-count, return to the starting position and repeat. Keep your back as straight as possible throughout the movement.
