Hip raises - Women's Health & Fitness

2. Hip raises

Again, start by lying on your back with knees bent and feet hip-width apart. With your hands by your sides, push down through your heels, squeeze your buttocks and raise hips to the sky.

Aim for a straight line between your shoulders and ankles. You should not feel this in your lower back, but if you do, avoid pushing up so high.

Perform 10 reps.
