Exercise Steps 2

Step

Slowly lower legs to the left, shifting weight onto left hip, lifting right cheek off the floor. Stop legs just before they touch the floor. Using abdominal muscles, lift legs back up to the center, and then repeat to the opposite side (imagine drawing a triangle with legs each time). That's one rep.
