This simple exercise is designed to work your glutes (buttocks), hamstrings and low back.
- Start this exercise by lying flat on your back on the mat. Inhale, push into your heels and lift your buttocks off of the mat. Your back should be straight and your abdominals should be engaged.
- Once in this position, lift one foot slightly (about 2 inches) off the floor.
- Without letting your torso twist, straighten the knee and point your foot out to the side in a kick like motion. Switch legs and do the same on the other side for one full rep.
- Recommended reps: 10-12 with both knees.
