1. Using the muscles in your back, slowly lift your chest off the floor while simultaneously raising one of your arms alongside your glutes. During the movement, keep the other arm relaxed on the floor.

2. Keep your eyes lowered so as not to exert too much pressure on the neck.

3. Take a breath shortly at the top of the lift, then return to starting position; be sure to at all times keep your chin tucked into your chest.

4. Slowly lower your body to the floor with one controlled, fluid motion. Keep your head and chest even so that they rest on the floor with the same movement.
