Leg Lowering Progression
Correctly performing high-level functional tasks such as running, jumping, stepping, and squatting, are all preceded by one’s ability to maintain dynamic trunk stabilization while one leg is in hip flexion and the other in hip extension. A basic active straight leg raise pattern can help to identify lower limb mobility issues, poor trunk stability, and inability to disassociate lower limb movements. At PPT the ideal corrective strategy has been to implement leg lowering progressions. Check out a few examples of what so many of our clients use within their workouts on a regular basis.
