Foot Elevated Lateral Leg Lift x 10-15 reps per leg (Video Below)
* Be sure to keep your body in one long line here (so don't break at the hips) so that you feel this in your side body and not your hip flexors.

* People - this one is a killer...
* Make sure your really keeping tension on that kitchen or bath towel as you reach as far as you can overhead before drawing the towel down to touch your chest with your elbows squeezing "together" towards your spine.
