This is a challenging, Pilates-style exercise for the abdominal muscles.
Lie on your back and lift your knees to approximately 90 degrees. Lift your head off of the floor and look at your belly button. Your neck and shoulders should be as relaxed as possible.
Exhale and extend your right leg until your heel almost touches the floor. At the same time, gently grasp your lower left leg with both hands.
Now switch legs, bringing the left leg in and extending the left leg away from you. Ensure that your pelvis and low back remain stable throughout the exercise. Repeat 10 times on each side, rest, then repeat the exercise if desired.
