Tutorial: V-Sit Explosive


The V-sit is an explosive core exercise that challenges the abdominals and quads. It requires optimal hamstring flexibility to perform skillfully.


  • Lie on your back with arms overhead.
  • Engage the core, and rapidly bring the hands to the feet, keeping the arms and legs straight.
  • Return under control and repeat.


As well as being an excellent whole body core exercise, this movement is also a gymnastic-specific drill that lays the foundation for the high levels of control required in numerous jumps and rolls. As a fitness exercise, the v-sit explosive works the abdominals through a larger range of motion compared to traditional exercises.
