DESCRIPTION

  • Lie flat on your back
  • Bring both of your knees up towards your chest to form a right angle with each leg 
  • Bring both arms straight into the air in line with your shoulders 
  • Slowly straighten one leg, whilst keeping the other in the 90 degree position 
  • At the same time, slowly move the opposite arm to the leg you have chosen backward over your head whilst maintaining this straight position - but do not put your leg on the floor, only hover
  • Bring both the straightened leg and arm back to your original position 
  • Switch over to move the other leg and other arm 
  • Bring them back to the neutral starting position 
  • Repeat  

COACHING POINTS

  • Ensure your maintain a good 90 degree angle on your legs
  • Go to the extent you are comfortable with, if you cannot bring your leg all the way down or arm all the way back, stay within your range 
  • Ensure you move the opposite arm and leg at the same time - for example if you move your left leg, you will move your right arm at the same time 
  • Make sure the movement is slow and controlled
  • This exercise aims to improve the player's core stability
