Instructions:

1) Get on all fours with your hands under your shoulders and your knees under your hips.

3) Whilst keeping a 90° bend in your knee lift your right leg straight back and up toward the ceiling.

- You can add an extra pulse at the top of the exercise where you slightly extend your leg a bit and push up a bit further.
