Move of the Week – Kneeling Rear Leg Raise

The kneeling rear leg raise is a great exercise to tone & strengthen the hamstrings, glutes and lower back. Begin on your elbows and knees, straighten your right leg behind you, and raise it as high as you can go without arching your back or compromising correct form. Bring your leg back down tapping the toe to the floor, then immediately raise it again. Once you’ve completed the exercise on the right side, switch legs and complete it with the left leg. The workout suggestion is to begin with 2 sets of 12 reps per leg, you will increase the number of sets as you gain strength doing this move.
