I absolutely LOVE doing this piece of my daily routine. It combines hip stretching, balance, coordination, strength, and agility. It's also a very important move to do if you have lower crossed syndrome or you sit a lot.
I realize that many people will have knee or foot or hip issues or other things that may keep you from performing this series as shown. You can adapt the movement by not dipping down as far as I do into the lunge and squat movements.
And it was a total Drovers morning for me. I usually listen to a podcast or something educational but today I was driven by the Drovers so I decided to let you hear what I was hearing as I was doing the movement series.
It's extremely useful for improving coordination because it mimics the "contralateral" infant develop pattern as learned from Voita, Kolar, et al. in Eastern Europe that connects the right and left sides of your brain!
Pay close attention to the text cues on the screen because they point out the "little hinges" that swing big doors!
This also uses the power of "eidetic perception" or the ability to use imagery and this "Intention" is everything when you are attempting to activate you deep core stability system.
The Imagination and Intention of your movement is arguably even more important than the movement itself.
Let me know what you think of this important movement in the comments. Were you able to do it? What kept you from doing it? Balance? Strength? Knee pain? Toe inflexibility? LEAVE YOUR COMMENT BELOW NOW!
