Keeping your focus on your lower body, it’s time for some floor work. Not only do seated single-leg raises work your core, they can also help stabilize your knees after an injury.
Duration: 20 to 30 reps per leg
- Sit upright with one knee bent and one extended.
- Flex the foot of your extended leg to a 90-degree angle and gradually raise that leg until it’s about a foot off the floor.
- Lower it slowly and repeat.
- Switch legs and repeat reps on opposite side.
Tomorrow: Slide, slide away.
