Lay down on your back. Keep your back firmly pressed down against the floor and push your palms down into the floor, by your hips, to help stabilize your core. Straighten your right leg and bend your left leg, placing your left foot on top of your right knee. Keep your core braced and lift your right leg up so it points straight to the ceiling. Slowly lower your right leg until your heel is just off the floor, then repeat the movement.

Try to keep your right leg off the floor for the entire exercise. The left leg will be lifted up by the right. Keep your core braced throughout.
