Technique

Start in a strong standing position, strong core, lift one knee and rotate it toward the opposite elbow, also rotate your torso. Step down the foot and repeat with the other side. Bring your knees up as high as possible. Remember to keep the spine straight, the exercise also improves the mobility in the spine as a bonus.

Tips

Keep your upper body upright, imagine that you have a sun on your chest and it wants to shine. Keep abs tight throughout the whole set, pull your belly toward spine.

Alternatives

You can get up on the toe (lift heel of the ground) in each lift if you want higher intensity.
