Stretch out Saturday …
- get in a lunge position
- square your hips
- then squeeze the glutes
- sink down, re-square, re-tuck, re-straighten the back leg, then lean back
Add a contraction for the bottom position if you like.
Once in the deepest, and technically best, position you can achieve (and making sure that you have tucked the tail as much as you can AND have the back leg’s hip as far forward as you can), then try to drag the back leg forwards for five seconds or so.
Then, take a breath in, re-apply all the cues, and as you breathe out, try to straighten the back leg’s knee a little more. This will be hard work.
