2. Relax the head and shoulders as you lift the hips up and curling the ball towards your glutes and hold for 1 second, while keeping your hips off the ground throughout the range of motion
3. Make sure to stay on the heel of your foot and squeeze glutes at the top
4. Slowly lower hips, straightening the leg without touching the ground and repeat
