How to: Lie face-up with your arms extended toward ceiling, directly over your shoulders, and knees bent 90 degrees over hips, calves parallel to the floor.

Modify: Keep your arms still and focus on your lower body, extending one leg down to floor at a time. Once you feel stronger/more comfortable, incorporate the upper body.
