Place two flat benches parallel to each other, about three to four feet apart.
Sit on one bench facing the other, with your hands grasping the side of the bench.
Using your hands to support your weight, lift your feet to the top of the other bench so that the rest of your body is suspended between the two benches.
Cross one foot over the other.
Slowly lower your body toward the floor by bending your elbows until your upper arms and forearms form a right angle.
Do not go below a 90-degree angle, as this can stress your shoulders.
Slowly raise back up to the start position by straightening your arms.
You can also place a weight plate on your upper legs for added resistance.
