Jacks Hip Extensions

Starting on all fours, make sure your back is in a neutral position (by neutral, this means your back is not caving in, but rather, straight & supported by your abdominal wall).  Slowly and with your knee still bent, extend one leg upward, bringing your knee in line with your torso, and your foot pressing upward in line with the ceiling, and then bring your knee back to the floor and repeat on the other side.  In this exercise, your hamstrings, glutes and your abdominal wall are all working together.  You may choose to use light ankle weights, although this is optional.
