Description
Stand in front of a chair or wall and place your hands on top of it. Take a step back so you are bent slightly at the hips. Keeping your abdominals tight and looking ahead raise one straight leg backwards. Try and keep the foot pointing downwards or a little to the outside. Do not point it too much to the outside of the hip will take over. Try and hold the flexing at the top of the movement for a better contraction. As you hold it rotate the foot and knee to point outwards, try and minimise the rotation of the hips. Then rotate the foot so the toes of the foot points in towards the other leg. Return the foot to face the ground and the leg to the standing position and repeat on the other side. Try and hold the flexing at the top of the movement for a better contraction. This is one repetition.
