You can do this with your butt against the wall (stand about a foot or so away from wall) for security if you want. And do these on an empty stomach, very important. These are called abdominal lifts, 6 pack here you come!
    I've got a hard time visualising this.
    Care to video yourself and put it on youtube?

I am now backpain free 100% and feel like I was 25 with my back muscles. My wife no longer has to put on my shoes for me (it was that bad I could not touch my toes). Keep on going, don't sit down, don't stop, you may waste away.
    I think we are made to walk, run, catch our food etc. etc. There's something good about it.
    +1 On pure inspiration!!
