7. Return your right leg down to 45-degrees and lift the left knee into a 90-degree angle.

8. Repeat steps 4 and 5 with your left knee and right elbow.

Speed is not the name of the game here; go slowly to focus on your form and your breathing.

Also, it is not necessary to touch your elbows to your knees as this could cause strain in your neck.
