Abdominal V-Ups have a high degree of difficulty and require some coordination to perform correctly. Before you try to do abdominal V-Ups, make sure to do a thorough stretch of your lower back and leg muscles. It is also a good idea to do some standard crunches to warm up your abdominal muscles.


Be careful performing abdominal V-Ups, since the exercise can cause a lower back injury if you do not use the proper technique.
