This is an advanced progression of the psoas march that also works the glutes! This is an excellent progression for all athletes due to the increased challenge of single limb stability.
Things to focus on when performing this exercise...
- The leg on the bench - keep the knee as straight as possible as you bring your other knee to your chest and back out. You should feel your hamstrings and glutes working!
- Don’t let your butt sag toward the floor
- Don’t let your pelvis rotate as you switch legs
