Begin with a thorough dynamic warm up before starting this exercise. This engages the nervous system.
How to Do:
This movement involves a stork stance hold with a bungee cobra movement.
Begin in a stork stance (for description see “stork stance hold” in the exercise library).
With the bungee positioned in front, perform a cobra movement (for description see “prone cobra” in the exercise library).
Perform the desired number of reps and switch legs.
Watch for excessive abnormal turning of the stance leg, excessive forward movement of the shoulder blade, or rolling of the middle back. These traits may be indications that the exercise is too advanced and needs to be regressed.
