Setup

 
 

Muscles

Process

Step 1: Lie on the floor with the legs extended and arms making a "T" formation. Grab the the Link™ with the opposite side hand.

Step 2: Bring the active leg perpendicular to the floor. Keep the both legs rigid.

Step 3: Pull the leg across the body and down towards the opposite side hand. Keep the shoulder blades pressed to the floor.


Tips

To ensure the active leg is rigid throughout the entire movement, squeeze the glute and the quad. Keep the upper back firm against the ground and avoid hyperextension in the back. Hold the stretch position for 30 seconds so the Link™ can take up slack as the muscle relaxes and allows for further mobility. Maintain dorsiflexion throughout the entire movement.
