Step 1: Squeeze the glutes and keep the core tight. Lift the active leg in a backwards kicking fashion while keeping the leg straight. Lead with the heel. Toes remain facing forward entire time.

Step 2: Return the active leg to starting position in a controlled manner.

Tips: Keep a strong posture with the core engaged. Don’t let the working leg or down leg relax and bend. Focus on the movement starting from the hip and not allowing your upper body to bend when moving, this will create mobility independence.
