Standing Leg Lift
Stand behind the ball on the floor with your hands on the ball and back parallel to the ground.
Bend your supporting leg slightly and lift opposite leg with a straight knee behind you up to hip height. Pause, then lower your toe to the floor maintaining that straight knee.
Gluteus maximus, Biceps femoris, Semimembranosus, Semitendinosus
TIP: Keep your foot flexed. Try to engage all of the muscles on the back of your leg by pushing through your heel and feeling length behind your knee. Engage your abs so they get a workout throughout the exercise.
