Day 120- SIngle Straight Leg Lower on Slomo Ball

This exercise is intended to add challenge to the leg lower, while giving support to the sacrum

To do this exercise you will need a mat and a soft ball.  Start by lying on your back with the soft ball under your pelvis.  One leg should be in a tabletop position and one leg should be straight with the heel reaching towards the ceiling.  Inhale as you point your toe and exhale as you lower your leg towards the floor.  Then inhale as you float the leg up to the ceiling. Repeat 5 times on each side.

Things to think about
Wobbly pelvises can bring strain to low backs and sacro-illiac joints.  Use your breath to make sure that your pelvic floor and lower abdominals are working.

Feel the length in your hip flexor as you lower the leg down.
