One partner lays back on the floor, with their arms out slightly to each side, while the other partner leans carefully on the raised feet of their extended legs, which are placed at or just above waist level as shown.

Slowly the prone partner brings their knees upwards, allowing the weight of the standing partner to come forward. When the thighs reach the stomach, the legs should then be pressed to return the partner to the vertical. The standing partner will need to tense their core to remain as straight as possible during this movement.

Repetitions: 20-25

Sets: 1-2

Another partner exercise which can be effective and fun, all at the same time. Avoids any requirement for equipment, and therefore great for doing at home or in the park.
