Opposite Arm & Leg Lifts

Starting Position
Kneel over your baby on your hands and knees. Your hands should be directly below your shoulders and your knees should be directly under your hips. Keep your spine and neck neutral and engage abdominals.

EXHALE: Slowly raise your left arm and right leg up into the air, balancing on the other hand and leg that are touching the ground. Lift as high as you can, until both your leg and arm are parallel to the floor. Hold for 1-3 seconds. INHALE: Slowly return to start. Repeat with the opposite sides to complete one rep. Aim for 1-3 sets of 10-15 repetitions.

Special Instructions
Breathe steadily throughout this exercise Do not lock out your elbows. Keep your shoulders and hips square to the ground. Try to move as slowly and controlled as possible, without using "momentum" to help you. Make it easier: Work your way up to this exercise by practicing in the same position but lifting only one limb (just your arm or just your leg) at a time.
