"I love this exercise because it will make even grown men cry," says Nicole Nichols, fitness expert for SparkPeople.com. "I do it often in my Pilates classes as well as in my body-sculpting workouts. It's deceptively hard. The supporting leg that you're balancing on will really feel the work in the glutes. Focus on that leg and squeeze the glute, pushing the hip forward as you do the leg lift on the opposite side," Nichols explains.
How to do it: Kneel with your left hand below your shoulder and left knee below your hip. Extend your top leg out on the mat and reach your top arm up. Lift your top leg as high as possible, then lower to ground. Repeat for 1 minute, then switch sides and repeat on other leg.
