Wow, - really intense work! I watched the class first and then did it myself while listening and glancing at the display.. Even though nobody gave me the nice touch for proprioception - it worked a lot for me, and I think it already helped to imagine somebody would tap or push my back.. Very, very helpful and creative! Great class and amazing teacher!! Thank you!

Wow my thoracic spine feels so much longer and more mobile! Thank you! One question, for the deep squat, if heels lift up right at the end of the movement is that ok or is there a cue which would help keep the heels down when you get right into the deep squat?

Hi Nic, thanks for your comment. As you are hanging in the bar, let your body weight to drop your heels down. You can also move away from the tower bar so you have more room for your ankle dorsiflexion. Gradually you can move closer to the cadillac as you achieve more dorsiflexion.
