Lie on back on floor or mat with arms extended out to sides. Raise bent legs so thighs are vertical and lower legs are horizontal.
Lower legs to one side until side of thigh is on floor. Raise and lower legs to opposite side. Repeat.
Maintain knee position throughout movement. See Spot Reduction Myth.
Movement can be made easier by tucking legs closer toward body, thereby decreasing length of resistance lever.
For greater resistance, place medicine ball between knees or straighten legs.
