I used something similar to this: Craftsman 13-1/2 in. Pry Bar Reviews - Craftsman Community and force it between the two boards. The goal is just to push them apart so there is a small gap between the two floor boards.

After I am done with this, I stick a 2 foot screwdriver through the finger hold and use it as a lever to lift the board.
