Return to the starting position and immediately draw your left knee to your chest.
Return your left leg to the starting position. That’s 1 rep.

Lie faceup with your legs extended and your arms on the floor by your sides. If your lower back needs some extra support, you can place your hands right underneath your butt on each side. This is the starting position.
Slowly lift your legs up and toward your face, keeping them together and stopping when they are about vertical.
Then, slowly lower them back down to the ground. Be sure to keep your back flat on the floor. If you’re having trouble with that or feel tension in your lower back, don’t lower your legs as far down.
