2) Hip Raises - These are great for your abs, butt, and legs! Squeeze those butt cheeks together when you lift your hips. Do 30-40.
3) Lying Leg Raises: Lie flat on your back with your hands at your sides. Slide hands, palms down, beneath your lower back / top of butt cheeks. Keep your legs straight, with feet flexed (toes pointing up), and slowly raise your legs up so ankles, knees and hips form a straight line perpendicular to the floor. Lower your legs slowly using your hands to cushion your lower back. Do 3 sets of as many as you can do at one time. For example, if you can do 6 at a time, do 6 then do two more sets of 6. If you can do 3 sets of 10, you're a rock star!
