Process

Step 1: Engage the core. Initiate movement from the hips. Position the Link™ up the backside of the body. The Link™ presses over the shoulders with the hands at the collar bone.

Step 2: Drop the hips as if you are going to sit in a chair, slowly lower the body until your thighs are parallel to the ground. Hold for 1 count.

Step 3: Push through the heels. Return to starting position in a controlled manner.
