Day 335- Leg Pull Back Feet on Log

This exercise adds proprioceptive challenge to the Leg Pull Back

To do this exercise you will need a mat and a foam roller.  Start sitting with your legs lengthened in front of you on the foam roller.  Lean back so that your hands are behind you.  Inhale into the back of the ribs and then exhale as you lift your hips into the air.  Inhale again and then exhale as you press one foot further into the roller and allow the other foot to float up into the air.

Things to think about
The higher that you lift your hips the easier this exercise will be.  Make sure that you are making the longest possible spine by keeping the ribs and the hips aligned.

Slide your shoulder blades down your back to maximize the shoulder stability and tricep work.
