To perform a straight leg raise with external rotation:
1. Lie in your back and bend one leg up. Straighten out the leg you should exercise, pulling your toes towards you to lock out your knee. Turn your toes and leg outwards.
2. Keeping your knee straight, lift the leg to the peak of the opposite knee, and slowly come back down.
