Extended Leg Toe Taps:
What it's good for:
This exercise works in extension, to lengthen the leg, while your butt does all of the work to lift it. There is the added benefit of targeting your lower abdominals while in this forearm based position.
How to do it:
1. Start on your hands and knees, ensuring your knees are directly below your hips. Drop on to your forearms, squeezing your shoulders down and back, and your lower tummy in.
2. Extend one leg, pointing the toe, then lift the leg towards the ceiling, being careful not to arch your back or wobble though the hips. Lower the leg to tap your toes to the floor, before lifting once again.
3. Repeat 20 reps on each leg, before holding the leg as high as you can for a round of 20 pulses. This move is even more beneficial when you add RESISTANCE! Think an ankle weight or booty band.
