  1. Lie on your stomach and place your feet 10 centimeters apart.
  2. Place your elbows under your shoulders.
  3. Tighten your stomach and buttocks and raise your hip.
  4. Keep your body as straight as possible.
  5. Hold for 30 seconds.
  6. Do you find this too heavy?
  7. If you find this too heavy you can make repetitions by moving your hip up and down. You hold the position above five seconds.
  8. Do you find this too light?
  9. Then place your elbows slightly forward so that your body has to compensate more to hold the position.
  10. Another option is to lift your leg or arm. Or for example the left arm and the right leg. Make sure that your hip stays straight during the movement.
