Single leg stretch

Single leg stretch

The single leg stretch is a great exercise for both abdominal strength and control. It is very important while doing this exercise that the breathing is very deep and position is maintained while inhaling.

Lay on your back, knees bent, feet on the floor. Take a deep breath and then while exhaling draw the navel to the spine and fold your knees to your chest one at a time.

Take another deep breath and, ensuring that your elbows are open and your shoulders are down, curl your upper body forward with your chin tucked into your chest and close the gap between your ribs and hips.

Another deep breath and while exhaling slowly stretch your right leg away from your body so that it is approximately 45 degrees to the floor.

Breath in and bring the leg back to your chest angling it towards your shoulder.

Repeat this with the other leg.

repeat this ten times with each leg.
