Hi everyone. This week's exercise is going to work your lower body. Lower body strength is important for balance and stability.

Part One:
-Lie down on a bed or in the floor.
-Bend your knees with your feet flat on the floor.
-Now straighten your right leg.
-Keeping that leg straight, lift it up level to the knee of your left leg.
-Repeat on other side. Do 10-15 times with each leg.

Part Two:
-Lie down on a bed or in the floor.
-Bend your knees with your feet flat on the floor.
-Now straighten your right leg.
-Keeping that leg straight, lift it up level to the knee of your left leg.
-With the leg lifted move it out to the right side as far as comfortable, but with a little effort, and then back in.
-Do not put the leg down. Keep it in the lifted position and continue to move it in and out.
-Repeat on other side. Do 10-15 times with each leg.
