Single Leg Bridge Curl
INSTRUCTIONS: The Single Leg Curl starting position is knees higher than hips and hips higher than shoulders. Using a folded towel under your feet, slowly slide outward, only as far as you can maintain stable hips and shoulders. Slide both feet back to the starting position.
EXERCISE GOAL: Maintain stable hips and shoulders. Avoid sagging the tail bone toward the floor or rocking hips back and forth. Shoulders remain in neutral position and do not rise up toward the ears.
Shoulder Elevated Single Leg Bridge
INSTRUCTIONS: Maintain a straight line from shoulders to knees without sagging your tail to the floor. Lift tail up and raise knee upward. Lower down to the start position and repeat either on the same side for several repetitions, or alternate left and right legs.
