Exercise execution guide

Starting position

Lay flat on your back on the mat. Bend your knees and bring your feet towards you, plant them flat on the ground. Lay your arms out straight at your sides with palms facing down.


Raise one leg and extend it out straight so that both thighs are parallel with each other. Driving through the heel of your planted foot, lift your hips off of the ground until you create a straight line from your shoulders to the foot of your raised leg - align all of the joints. Squeeze your glutes and keep your core braced. Pause and then lower your hips back to the starting position while keeping the raised leg extended. Repeat with the opposite leg.
