To find out how to do this move read more.
- Begin on your back, with your legs straight and your torso propped up on your elbows.
- Now press into your feet and lift your bum off the ground. Try to keep your body in one diagonal line.
- When you're ready, alternate between lifting your right leg up and then your left. Move with control, and keep the movements slow and steady. The entire time, make sure you're continuing to lift your hips.
- Complete 8 to10 lifts on each leg, eventually working up to 15 on each side. Take a break and do one more set.
This exercise is a similar to the classic Pilates move Leg Pull Back. I think this version on the elbows is more difficult; what about you?
