Move Targets: Core
Step 1: Lie on your back with your legs and feet together and your arms stretched out to a "T" shape, palms down.
Step 2: Using the lower abs, lift one leg straight above the hip. If this is too difficult, bend the knee first, then extend.
Step 3: Keeping both shoulder blades on the ground, cross the leg over to the other side. Tap it on the floor if you can. The more perpendicular you can get it, the better.
Step 4: Raise the leg up and set it down, then raise the other leg over the hips.
Step 5: Repeat the crossover on the other side. Respect your limits and work up to creating new ones! This is an excellent exercise to use for warm ups.
