Keeping your knees close together, smoothly lift the heel of one foot up towards your buttocks, aiming to feel the contraction in your muscle as you both lift and lower.

Focus on taking at least 5 seconds to perform each movement, working one leg at a time (harder), keeping your back straight and head up throughout the movement.
