SEATED STRAIGHT-LEG RAISE. Sit with legs
extended straight on the ground, spine tall
and abdominals contracted. Bend your right
knee, bringing your right heel toward your
groin. Wrap your arms around your right
knee, then contract the top of your left thigh
and lift your left leg 2 to 4 inches off the
ground. Hold for 5 seconds, then slowly lower
leg to start position and repeat for reps.
Switch sides and repeat.
