Progression of Double Leg Stretch. Increases core control and flexibility, and challenges the stability in new planes of movement.
In Corkscrew, the legs are moving into the lateral (side) plane of the body as well as adding a small twist to the spine- a difficult manoeuver for both upper and lower body. Establishing the reach, opposition, breath, and control of the previous exercises is a must before attempting the Corkscrew.
Contraindicated for lower back issues and extremely tight lower back and Hamstrings; please refer to One leg Circle instead as this is the sequence to establish correction.
