  • Lie down on your left side with your legs stacked on top of one another and your toes pointed forward.

  • You can cushion your head on your bent left arm.

  • Gently raise your right leg off of your left leg without rotating your knee or spine.

  • Continue to raise your leg straight up until your hip starts to tilt upward or you feel strain in your lower back or oblique muscles.

  • Return your leg to its starting position in a controlled manner.

  • The number of sets that are right for you depends on your overall fitness level.

  • Don’t forget to roll over to your right side and complete the same number of repetitions with your left leg.
