Round The World Leg Swing - Chemmy's Tips
Lying on the floor on your back, bring your knees up to almost 90 degrees.
Drop one leg down and circle across the body, twisting your lower torso.
As you can see by the photos, I have quite flexible hamstrings so can get my leg quite high - this is just a warm up so you should feel comfortable.
This exercise is a dynamic lying down leg pendulum.
Continue until legs feel loose and warm.
