Butterfly situps are an efficient way of getting up off the ground from a laying position. You can use your arms for further momentum to be able to get up off the ground in the lying position in a seated position. Start (as seen below) by placing your feet close together, have the ab mat underneath the lumbar curvature of your spine The purpose of the ab mat is to make you focus on your abdominal muscles and not just your hip flexors.
Power your hands forward starting to gain your momentum.
Continue the movement forwards.
To complete the repetition, touch the ground in front of your toes.
