Plank Pose With Leg Lift Exercise for Bone Health

Step 1

Lie on your stomach on the floor.

Step 2

Prop yourself up on your elbows and knees, with your shoulders located directly above your elbows.

Step 3

Gradually raise your knees up into the air and stiffen your body so that your entire body is straight and all of your weight is suspended between your feet and elbows.  Hold yourself in that position.

Step 4

Slowly raise one leg off the ground, lifting as high  as your flexibility allows.  Keep your knee straight while lifting the  leg.  Then slowly return your  body to the starting position to complete one repetition.  Repeat 9 more times to complete one set of 10 repetitions.

Step 5

Repeat the process with 10 repetitions with the other leg.

You’ve completed this one!  Great job!
