FRONTAL PLANE COGS
JUST LIKE THE COGS IN A MACHINE, YOUR BODY HAS MANY SETS OF IT’S OWN. ADJOINING PARTS THAT WORK SIMULTANEOUSLY BUT IN OPPOSITE DIRECTIONS TO ONE ANOTHER. THIS EXERCISE IS A SYNCING EXERCISE FOR THE SKILL, TRUNK, PELVIS AND FEET.
Stand with you feet shoulder width apart and your arms by your sides
Pelvis: Bend you left knee which will drop the left side pelvis and hiking your pelvis on the right, the switch it over by bending your right knee
Trunk: Drop your right shoulder towards the ground, creating a ‘C’ shape in your right side waist, then drop your left shoulder
Skull: Your skull should stay level with your eyes focused forward. But you can slightly drop your left ear towards your shoulder, then drop your right ear towards your right shoulder.
** Take care not to move your pelvis or ribs sideways **
WHOLE MOVEMENT: Repeat for 1 minute
Bend your left knee which hikes the hip on the right, bring your right shoulder down and keep your head centered with your eyes level
Then reverse it
Bend your right knee which hikes the left hip, bring your left shoulder down and keep your head centered with your eyes level
