Process

Step 1: Squeeze the glutes and core. Position the Link™ so it is applying downward force on the hip region. Bring active leg perpendicular to the ground.

Step 2: Push through the down heel and scapula. Feet stay in dorsiflexion. Raise the hips while keeping the glutes activated. Lead with the active leg heel. Hold for 3 count.

Step 3: Return the hips to starting position in a controlled manner.
