Set Up: Begin on your back with your knees bent, feet flat on the floor. Raise your hips from the ground, squeezing your butt as you rise.

Action: Extend your right leg until it is aligned with your torso. Hold this position for 10 to 20 seconds, then slowly flex your knee and return your foot to the ground without touching your hips to the floor. On your next rep, extend your left leg. Aim to hold this move three times on each side.
