Single Leg Lift
Move Targets: Quads and Hip Flexors
Step 1: Lie on your back and prop yourself up on your elbows. Make sure the elbows are directly under the shoulders. Extend the feet out in front of you, then bend one of the legs so the entire foot is on the ground. Flex the foot on the extended leg.
Step 2: Exhale and squeeze the quad on the extended leg as you lift it. This will also work your hip flexors, which you may feel at the crease of your waist. Make sure you keep the work in the quad and hip flexor instead of the back. Inhale and gently lower. Repeat.
