Hey. I'm Layla and I'm going to show you the kneeling leg lift.
So, you're going to be down on your mat or floor, wherever you want to be. We're going to start off kneeling on our hands and knees.
You're going to make sure that your shoulders are aligned with your wrists in this positioning and your hips are over your knees here.
So, we're going to start off with the left leg. We're going to take the left leg out to the side and we're just going to do a leg lift out to the side from here.
So, you're going to bring that leg up, down. Just like this. Up and down. Up and down.
So, in this position you really want to be sure to keep most of the weight on the left side of your body if you're working the left leg. The tendency is for most people to bring their body weight to the opposite side which is going to take the tension off the leg that you're working.
So, you want to keep the tension focused on the glut, the hip area. Right here. This is all that's working.
So, make sure you keep most of the weight on the left side of your body if you're working the left leg. Take that leg up and down. Up and down. Just like that.
A tip that I give. If this is too hard to keep the weight on the left side, just place both hands together and same thing. Just so that the tension remains on the glut and the hip area of the leg that you're working.
And then same thing thing other side. Take those hands over to the other side. You're going to take that leg up and down. Up and down. Just like that. And this exercise really targets the hip and the glut area here.
And that's how you do a kneeling leg lift.
