  1. Position hands within shoulders width, palms facing away from your body and contract abs. This is the starting position.
  2. While contracting abs, take 1 second to raise body until chin is above bar. Pause 1 second.
  3. Then, take 3 seconds to lower body to starting position. That is 1 rep.

Do three sets: Set #1: 3 reps; Set #2: 2 reps, Set #3: 1 rep.
