Move Targets: Inner Thigh and Glutes
Step 1: Come down to your elbow on one side, making sure the elbow is directly underneath the shoulder. Extend the bottom leg completely and set the top leg behind it with a comfortable bend. Rest the body bar over the arch of the foot. If you don't have one, try a broom. You can always lie down and cradle your head in your elbow to ease shoulder or back tension.
Step 2: Keeping the foot flexed and leg straight, lift. The hips must stay straight so be mindful of them trying to roll backward. Release the leg slowly without slamming it to the floor or letting it collapse. The downward motion is just as important as the upward lift.
