Hip raise with single leg reach

Activate your abs and your glutes with a hip raise, then extend one leg out – hold for 5 seconds, return to start. Repeat the same side or swap and do 15 reps each side.


  • Eyes to the sky/ceiling, chin off your chest.

  • Hands under your head instead of ‘pushing’ you up as can often happen when they are by your sides.
