Ottoman Knee Ups





Knee Ups
Side Knee Ups
Eccentric Contraction


Basically all you do is bring your knees up to your chest. Then you exhale and resist letting your legs out.  And up, and resist.  And up, and resist. And up, and resist. Ok, so we’re going to do about 10 of these. 6, 7, 8, 9, 10.

Now I’m going to show you the side ones just so you know how to do these. As you get more advanced you want to do some side ones too. So just sit on your right butt cheek, and then just bring your legs up like you were before, but they’re just to the side a little bit. So then this will be working the left side of your stomach so that’s where you want to concentrate on resisting as you move your legs out. So up, and resist. Up and resist. The do it on the other side too. Up and resist. Up and resist. Up and resist.

The eccentric part of this exercise is the key to having it most effective. Make sure you’re resisting as you bring your legs out, not just on the up.
