*Upper Body is traditionally lifted up as in the Single leg Stretch if tolerated.
In The Double Leg Stretch, the torso must be stronger in order to provide enough stability to reach both legs away form the center, and then pull them in with flexibility and control. This understanding comes from practice of the previous exercises of the Hundred, Roll-Up, and One Leg Stretch.
Muscles Targeted: Abdominals, Hip and Thigh Muscles, Psoas, Deep Paraspinals
Contraindicated for Lower Back issues.
