Rear Leg Raise
Kneel on the floor or an exercise mat and bend at the waist with your arms extended in front of you (perpendicular to the torso) in order to get into a kneeling push up position but with the arms spaced at shoulder width. Your head should be looking forward and the bend of the knees should create a 90 degree angle between the hamstrings and the calves.
Extend your right leg behind you resting on your toes.
Lift up your right leg until it is higher than line of your back. Contract the glutes throughout this movement and hold the contraction at the top for a second.
Lower your leg until your toes touch the floor again. Repeat the exercise according to the training plan then switch legs.
