WHY: This exercise will introduce rotation to your body. This is great for improving hip and low back mobility. A secondary benefit here is getting your abdominal muscles to activate.
HOW: While laying on your back with your knees bent, slowly drop your knees to one side. Don’t let your shoulder on the opposite side lift off off the floor, this will maximize the low back and hip stretch. Use your abdominal muscles to bring your knees back up to the starting position and alternate sides.
FEEL: You should feel a stretch in your low back and outer hip muscles. When bringing the legs up you should feel your abdominal muscles working.
