Leg Pull

Leg Pull

The Leg Pull is an advanced exercise that challenges complex and coordinated movement from the core, with very little contact on the mat to support the body. This works to strengthen the shoulders, wrists, back, abdominals, Gluteals, and Hamstrings

Essence: Lift the leg from the abdominals, maintain long reach out of gravity

Breath: Inhale to lift the leg AND to move fowards/back, exhale to place foot down (remember, this is an advanced exercise, if you cannot breathe well nor stabilize well, please revisit the earlier exercises as they are meant to strengthen you for these more challenging exercises)

Tips: Do not Bend the elbows or knees-this takes away from the effort needed by the shoulders and hips
Deepen the abdominals to lift and sustain the leg lift, and deepen the abdomen to transition the forward/back motion

imagine a campfire underneath the abdomen and the flames are flickering close to the skin

Imagine a tray across your lower back throughout the exercise- don't let it slide off

Maintain the head at the same height as the tailbone
