Back Exercises: Leg Pull
To start, lie on your back with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Don’t press your neck or lower back to the floor. Breathe deeply. You should feel comfortable and relaxed in this position.
Pull one knee to your chest.
Hold for 30 to 60 seconds. Return to starting position.
Repeat 2 times.
For a double leg pull, pull both legs to your chest at the same time. Repeat 2 times.
Stop the exercise if it causes pain. Discuss it with your physical therapist or healthcare provider.
For your safety, check with your healthcare provider before starting an exercise program.
