HOW: In a seated position, place your arms behind your back. Tilt your head down to your chest and slump your back putting your chest more over your thighs. Think of getting in a “bad posture” position. Move the involved foot inward and point down. Slowly kick up making sure the motion is controlled. There may be a point when you feel some discomfort or a stretching feeling. Do not kick past any pain or discomfort unless told otherwise.
FEEL: You may feel a slight pull in the back of your neck down through your back. As you kick your leg up, you may also feel a pull in your calf up to your hamstring and glute area.
COMPENSATION: Don’t sit up straight, or have your foot pointed up to the sky.
