HOW: While sitting up, place your hands slightly behind you at your side. Bend one knee up and place your foot flat on the ground. Straighten the other leg out. Using your heel, push down into the ground lifting your hips up while keeping your chest back. Squeeze your glutes and engage your core at the end and slowly come back down.
FEEL: The hamstrings and glute muscles in the straight leg will have the strongest contraction.
COMPENSATION: Keep your chest back and torso upright. Don’t slump forward as you push your hips up.
