🌟 Begin by finding your neutral position by using the β€œpelvic pushes” from earlier.
🌟 Keep your heels together and inner thighs squeezed together so that your legs don’t separate!

Hints & Tips:

🌟 If you have difficulty with this exercise, try lifting alternately your legs then arms.
🌟 Think of reaching out rather that just lifting up your arm and legs.
🌟 Be careful not too curve forwards: maintain a neutral spine.Β  Don’t look at what your legs are doing – look straight ahead!
