Toned legs and strong glutes (butt) are desirable for appearance as well as proper movement patterns. This exercise is a fantastic strength exercise that will help you feel the exercise working and see results. Try to maintain a tall posture while performing the exercise. Your back should stay straight, and your body should move as a strong, straight board while you stand on one straight leg.
Work to keep your pelvis and hips still. This should be challenging, as most people will want to lift their hip up as they lift their leg behind. Your leg may not go up very high behind you, which is a good thing if your pelvis is maintaining stability with no movement.You should particularly feel this in your glutes (butt), hamstrings (back of thighs), and calves (back of lower legs).
