Setup instructions

1) Stand tall with your chest up, core tight, back flat and head neutral. Extend both arms out either side and lift your right foot up.

Perform instructions

1) Hinge forward from the hips and extend your right leg out - their should be a straight line between your rear leg and back.

2) Now, twist your trunk and reach your left hand towards the floor - this will cause a slight external rotation with your left leg. The endpoint should be both arms parallel - the left leg planted on the floor with the right straight extended behind.

3) Hold this position until the end of the timer.
