- Reel 9, Track 2, Lesson 2
- The goal is to be able to bring the legs through the “frog’s leg” trajectory (face up, bringing knee to standing over the foot by turning the leg on to the outside edge and drawing the leg towards you, then bringing the knee to standing; and reverse), while the low back remains quiet (instead of arching). This lesson’s approach is through lifting the head to flatten the low back on the floor. Variations include alternating each leg individually and both together; quarter speed of the part of the movement drawing the knee up and open to the side; emphasizing constant speed and timing (knee and foot both move at a steady rate throughout the trajectory); bringing each knee and the forehead towards one another (with the help of the hands–ipsilateral, contralateral, both hands on knee and both hands behind head); keeping head lifted while extending and standing legs.
