This is exercise creates upper body mobility and lower stability in the Tall Kneeling position.
Deep Squat Assisted with FMT
This exercise provides assistance for increasing mobility of the squat pattern.
- Starting Position:
- Symmetrical Stance
Place the handles at a high point of attachment and run the middle of the tubing around your back. Grab the foam handles and make sure the tubing is underneath your arms. Wrap arms around tubing once and keep arms relaxed through the movement. Place feet shoulder width apart. Begin deep squat by bending your knees, keeping them wide but keeping feet flat. Slowly lower down as far as you feel comfortable.
Keep the trunk over feet and chest up during the movement. For more assistance, slide further away from the point of attachment and/or add a heel lift if needed to make squat feel better. Before starting your exercise, please make sure the point of attachment for the tubing is secure.
This exercise helps develop dorsiflexion throughout a full range of hip, knee and ankle mobility.
This exercise shows rotational stability against an asymmetrical load and serves as a preparation for the single arm kettlebell swing.
This self-limiting exercise helps to expose a lack of motor control and bilateral asymmetries in the Tall Kneeling position.
