How to

Starting Position

1. Make sure to keep your core and glutes engaged throughout the entire movement. 2. Avoid arching your back or sagging your hips as you lift your knee up. 3. Do not overextend your knee as you bring it in.

Proper Form

1. Lift your right foot off the ground and bring your knee up toward your chest. 2. As you bring your knee in, twist your torso slightly to the left, bringing your right elbow toward your left knee. 3. Return to the starting position and repeat the movement on the left side.

Breathing Technique

1. Inhale as you lower your leg back to the starting position and exhale as you lift your knee up.

Precautions

1. Start in a high plank position with your hands directly under your shoulders, your feet hip-width apart, and your core and glutes engaged. 2. Make sure your body forms a straight line from your head to your heels.
