Trying to keep the body and legs in a straight line keep the feet and knees together.
Raise the top leg into the air using the side waist and buttock muscles. Try to keep the hips aligned and do not let the trunk roll back.
Hold the leg up and then lower with control to the starting position.
Repeat the exercise on the opposite side.
