- Lie on floor or mat. Place one leg straight and bend the
other leg with foot flat on floor or mat. Place arms down on
mat to each side of hips.
- Raise body by extending hip of bent leg, keeping extended
leg and hip straight. Return to original position by lowering
body with extended leg and hip straight. Repeat and continue
with opposite sides.
- Hamstring remains in active
insufficiency throughout movement since knee is significantly
flexed and hip does not flex beyond 90 degrees. Adductor
Magnus does not assist since hip extension does not occur
in fully flexed position.
