First up, we have the 2 Leg Lift. Start by positioning your body in a 90 degree head-to-knee position, with your pelvis and back pointed towards the ground. Next, bend one knee and hold it close to the ground for 60 seconds. Repeat on the other leg. The 3 Leg Lift is a simpler, but just as effective, hip extension exercise. Simply place one foot on the ground and bend your knee, holding it in place for 60 seconds. Repeat on the other leg. For an even greater challenge, try the 5 Leg Lift. This exercise is the most effective hip extension technique, as you bring your foot almost to the ground and hold it for 60 seconds. Lastly, the 6 Leg Lift follows the same technique as the 5 Leg Lift, but with an added twist. Instead of holding your knee close to the ground, you'll be holding it in a fully upright position. Start by sitting with your hip and pelvis in a 45 degree position and your feet planted firmly on the ground. Bend one knee to the ground and hold for 60 seconds. Repeat on the other leg.
