Execution
Pull your right heel towards your butt by bending your right knee. Engage your abs and fire your glutes to raise your hips. Slowly straighten your right leg back out in front of you (back to the starting position). Continue for the prescribed number of repetitions (reps) with your right leg then switch legs and repeat.
