Single-Leg Straight-Leg Raise
How to: Single-Leg Straight-Leg Raise
- With a recovery band looped around one foot, lie on your back on a yoga mat. Ensure that the recovery band is in good condition and securely anchored around your foot to avoid injury. Engage your abdominal muscles by drawing your belly button in towards your spine. Keeping your feet flexed, slowly raise your legs off the floor until they form a 90-degree angle with your hips. This is your starting position.
- Inhale and keeping your core engaged, slowly lower the leg not secured by the recovery band until it is slightly off the floor. Exhale and raise your leg to return to the starting position. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions or time on each side.
