Your toes should be on the floor so that your body is in a straight line from your feet to your head. Be sure that your head is in line with the neck and the upper back should be straight during the entire exercise. Pull in your abs and keep your midsection tight.

For less intensity, perform the exercise with your knees on the floor.
