Move Targets: Abductors/Thighs


Step-by-Step

Step 1: Begin in a low side plank with your legs stacked (as shown) or staggered. You can also drop to the bottom knee and kick the calf and foot behind you. Keep the thighs stacked, though. Your shoulder will come right over the elbow.

Step 2: Lift the top leg straight up and bring it to the front. Point the foot and keep the leg straight.
