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.
