Use the pedal to widen your upper back to stand on with hips overhead.
Laying on the floor with your head to the chair. Check that your head is not on the platform of the chair but on the floor about an inch from the chair. The springs should be at least 1 middle. But if you need more spring you can add. The pedal is an added challenge but you don’t want to put so many springs on you can cheat. Place your hands on the sides of the pedal and hug the pedal with your hands from your upper back. Look at the ceiling. Lift your legs to the ceiling, over your hips. Squeeze your legs together.
Without pulling on the pedal lift your hips over and over the top of the chair. You can go up onto your shoulders but not on your neck. Slide your feet to the corner of the chair and then roll down the side of your body. Sweep your legs through the center and around to the other side of the chair. Reach the legs from that corner to the center of the chair. Then reverse directions. Repeat 3x each side.
If this goes well play with Jackknife and the ab series on the chair.
