2. Leg Raise

Position yourself between two bars set shoulder-width apart. Lock your elbows, and while keeping your legs straight, raise them to hip level and hold for a second. Then slowly lower your legs back down.

3. Pike Exercises

Lie on your back in a hollow rock position. Lock your legs together and slowly bring your arms and legs together while engaging your core. Extend your arms past your legs. Pause, then slowly bring your arms and legs back to the starting position.
