Instructions

Sit with your legs out in front of you with your inner thighs together and feet softly pointed. Place your palms into the mat behind your pelvis with the fingers pointing forward. On an exhale maintain a stable centre as you lift your pelvis up off the mat until your body is in a straight line resting on your heels and hands.

Breathe in as you lift one leg keeping it straight and maintaining the position of your spine and pelvis. Exhale to lower the leg back down to the mat. Alternate legs completing up to 5 reps on each leg. To finish, lower the pelvis while maintainng a stable centre.

How to make Leg Pull Front easier

If you are unable to keep your pelvis stable when you lift the leg, practice coming into the start position while you build your abdominal strength with the regression exercise option.
