Start prone position, on hands and knees, body square.  Extend one leg, until parallel with the floor, then bend the knee, foot facing the ceiling almost making an “L” shape with your leg.  Now proceed to kick your foot to the ceiling, straight up, using your glutes to extend your leg.  Do not let your leg come back to far down, only to about parallel, working for the desired kick reps on that leg.  Proceed to repeat the same action on the other leg as well.
