Extend your arms with your fingers interlaced, palms facing your knees.
Begin with your upper body at a slightly less than 90-degree angle to the floor.
Lower your body toward the floor, curling your torso forward, rounding your lower back, and keeping your abs contracted.
When your body reaches a 45-degree angle to the floor, return to the starting position.
You may need to tuck your feet under a set of weights to help maintain balance throughout the exercise.
