Lie on a flat surface with your knees bent and both feet planted on the ground. As you raise one leg straight in the air, thrust your hips off of the ground, creating an arch in your lower back. Be sure to drive through the heel of your foot in order to contract the hamstrings and glutes as you lift off of the ground.

Repeat for 30 Seconds before switching legs. 

2. Hydrant with leg extension

Get down on the mat on all fours. Hands should be directly below the shoulders and knees below the hips. Lift your right leg out to the side. Lift the leg as high as you can without rotating your hips, or leaning to the left side
