HOW: Begin in a seated position on the ground with your hands comfortably planted under your shoulders and your knees bent with feet on the ground. From this position, push through your hands and feet to lift your hips off the ground a few inches. Maintain this position as you shift your weight forward onto your feet allowing the arms to come into a comfortable degree of shoulder extension. Hold for the prescribed amount of time and return to the starting position.
FEEL: You will feel your core and hip musculature working to keep your hips up off the floor as well as a comfortable stretch in the front of the shoulders as you shift your weight forward onto your feet.
COMPENSATION: Keep your hips elevated off the floor a few inches while you perform this exercise.
