Back to Exercises

Difficulty: Medium

Impact Level: Normal

Target Body Parts: abs, glutes


Start from a plank or press up position with you hands directly below your shoulders and your body in a straight line between the ankle and the shoulder.

Breathe in to raise the right leg while pressing the left heel towards the mat, keep the right leg straight and use the glute muscle to lift the whole leg from the top of the thigh. Breathe out to press into the ball of the left foot to shift the weight forward as you lower the right leg. Maintain a stable centre throughout using the abdominal muscles. Repeat up to 5 times on each leg.

How to make Leg Pull Back easier

if you find lifting the leg as high as possible is causing an anterior tilt of your pelvis, try stopping the lift at hip level.
