2. Slowly raise your opposite arm and opposite leg and extend them out away from the body. Keep your back straight. Your extended arm and leg should line up with your torso. Tighten your abdominals and contract your glutes. Hold for 3 seconds.



3. Return to the starting position and repeat with the other side.



4. Repeat for the desired repetitions.
