Day 332- Leg Pull Back Hip Lift with Straight Legs

This exercise strengthens the back line of the body.

To do this exercise you will need a mat.  Start sitting with your legs long beneath you and place your hands behind you.  Your fingertips should either be pointing to the side or towards your body.  Inhale into the back of your ribs and then exhale as you press your heels into the ground and lift your hips.  Inhale as you release your hips to the ground and then repeat by lifting your pelvis again.

Things to think about
The width of the collarbones will make this exercise the most successful.  Imagine that your breastbone is emerging from between your collarbones.

If your knees are hyperextended be sure to bend them slightly when lifting your hips so that you are using your muscles.
