Step 1: Start by drawing in the stomach and bracing the upper body while keeping the neck relaxed. Squeeze the glutes.
Step 2: Push through the heel and hinge at the hip and the knee. As the foot is pushed up into the air, the knee will extend the foot further up. Finish the movement with the foot parallel to the ground. Hold for 1 count.
Step 3: Return the leg to starting position in a controlled manner.
Tips: Keep a strong core throughout. Also focus on keeping the leg at ninety degrees until the hip is fully extended so the glute does most of the work and not the hamstrings.
