Imagine you are in a toaster. You don't want to burn your glutes or your knees. Feet externally rotated. Knees and hips in 1 horizontal line.

Place the entire foot of the bent knee on the floor. Fully lock and externally rotate the other leg. Flex your foot!

Knees locked. Back is straight. Look at hands guiding the movement up.

Pull your bent knee towards your chest. Hold the knee there and fully locked it. Do not move the knee away from the chest while extending it. Hold the position with the straight leg for a moment. Do not externally rotate either leg. Keep your hips and shoulders squared.

Hips and shoulders stay squared. Do not externally rotate the bottom leg. Pull the bent knee up towards the chest and out sideways towards your armpit. Do not allow the knee to move away from this position while you extend it.
