This exercise targets your glutes maximus, medius, and minimus muscle. Lifting one leg puts extra pressure on your hamstrings and your lower back, making this exercise more intense.
How to do it
Step 1: Lie on your back with your feet hip-width apart from each other. Bend your left knee and place the foot flat on the ground. Your right leg should be straight.
Step 2: Inhale, squeeze your glutes and push your hips toward the ceiling. At the same time lift your right leg upward. Your knees and hip should be in a straight line.
Step 3: Pause for 2-3 breaths and then bring the hips down, make sure your body does not touch the ground. Repeat the movement 14-15 times and then change your leg.
