Exercise 1446: Balance Control

3 mins
What You'll Need:
Mat
also known as Control Balance

Muscle Focus: Abdominals and hip extensors.

Objective: Pelvic stabilization and strengthening the glutes and hamstrings.

Start Position: Lay flat on back with arms by side, and both legs extended straight up to the ceiling. Roll over and place the balls of the feet into the Mat. Circle your arms around and place both hands on the right foot.

Movement: Extend the left leg straight to the ceiling. Without changing the position of the hips or torso, place the ball of the left foot back onto the Mat and extend the right leg to the ceiling. Repeat. For more advanced practitioners, legs can switch simultaneously.

Precautions: Avoid this exercise if you have neck or spine injuries. Maintain a still and stable pelvis and square hips as the legs move. Maintain the lift of the hips and abdominals to the ceiling so as not to sink in the powerhouse.
