Hip Raises for Women

Hip Raises

  1. Lie faceup on the floor with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor.
  2. Raise your hips so your body forms a straight line from your shoulders to your knees. Pause for up to 5 seconds in the up position, then lower your body back to the starting position.

8 Killer yoga poses to burn fat

Tip Push against the floor with your heels, not your toes. To make it easier, you can position your feet so that your toes rise off the floor.

Tip Avoid looking at your waistline to check your posture. Keep your head flat on the floor and stare at the ceiling instead.
