Stork stance cobra using bungee with rotation

STRENGTH

Preparation:

  1. Begin with a thorough dynamic warm up before starting this exercise. This engages the nervous system.
  2. Maintain a tall posture in the spine throughout the exercise and good stability through the abdomen.

 

How to Do:

  1. This movement involves a stork stance hold, a bungee cobra movement, and a rotation through the trunk and shoulders.
  2. 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) as you rotation the shoulders and trunk - as shown.
  3. Pay close attention to the video link to observe the dynamic nature of this movement.
  4. Perform the desired number of reps and switch legs.
  5. Watch for - excessive abnormal movement of the stance leg, excessive forward movement of the shoulder blade, or rolling of the middle back. Observing these traits may be indications that the exercise is too advanced and needs to be regressed.
