Most moms in Stroller Strides tell us that their hips and thighs are a trouble spot after having a baby. This exercise targets those troublesome areas.
Lay down onto the back and anchor the feet with a forward foot wrap (shown above). Anchor elbows down by the waist and bend the knees down to the outside of the abdomen, like frog legs. Squeezing the inner thighs, slowly press the legs back up, contracting the quadriceps at the top of the movement.
- Core should remain tight to support the spine
- Keep knees soft at the top, don't lock them out.
For less intensity, feel free to perform this exercise without tubing/resistance.
