Double Leg Kicks
Lie facedown with one cheek on the mat and your hands behind your back, grasping the fingers of one hand with the other. Your hands can be as high up on the back as the elbows can comfortably remain on the mat (A). Inhale slowly as you lift both legs 2 inches off the mat and, with inner thighs glued together, “kick” your bottom three times with your heels as you exhale (B). Inhale with control as you stretch your legs back and lift your chest high, reaching your hands (still grasping one another) back toward the heels and hovering a few inches from your bottom (C). Exhale with control as you turn your face and place the opposite cheek on the mat. The elbows bend, the hands return to your back, and your knees are still lifted. Repeat two sets.
