Single Leg Track Swing

Single Leg Track Swing

What is it?

  • Single Leg Track Swing is an intermediate stretch that increases stability, flexibility, and balance in the CORE, hips, and legs.

Who should perform it?

  • This flexibility exercise may be performed by healthy exercisers who have adequate flexibility in the lower body.

Getting Started:

  • Perform a cardio and active stretching warm-up for 3-5 minutes. Stand tall with the feet hip-width apart. Roll the shoulders back and press downward. Suck in the tummy in an effort to make the navel touch the spine.

Performing the Exercise:

  • Shift the bodyweight to balance on the left leg. The movement of this exercise is similar to riding a skateboard. Bring the right knee up until the thigh is nearly parallel to the floor. At a medium speed, straighten and swing the right leg behind you while allowing the right foot to lightly brush the floor. Swing the right leg back to the front while bending the knee. Repeat for desired number of repetitions. Perform this exercise on the opposite side.
  • Be Safe!
  • Be sure to keep the tummy pulled in and chest out throughout the exercise. If any pain or discomfort is experienced discontinue this exercise.
