Lie on your back, then raise upper body, supporting yourself on lower arms. Twist feet inward as far as you can and tip your head back to stretch "double chin" neck muscles.

Maintain the same position and rotate your feet out as far as possible. Really push hard with your feet to get the most out of the exercise. Repeat the whole movement 16 times.
