This is an upper body dynamic exercise in the single leg stance position.
Single Leg Stance with Core Engagement with Cable System
This core engagement technique enhances quality timing, mobility and stability in single leg stance.
- Starting Position:
- Single Leg
Stand with the feet together in a narrow stance. Raise the arms overhead and grab onto each of the handles. While standing in a tall position begin to pull both handles down towards the hips at the same time. Once this position has been achieved, lift one leg off the ground and make sure to maintain balance. Lower the raised leg back to the ground and then let handles go back up. There will be a slight weight shift so that the standing leg will bear all of the weight. Do the same movement with the other leg and note any differences.
This exercise is used to increase resistive ability and assess right and left hip contribution in the hip hinge.
This is a single arm pressing movement designed to improve upper body strength while training static motor control with assistance in the single leg stance.
This self-limiting exercise helps to expose a lack of motor control and bilateral asymmetries in the half Kneeling position.
