Progressions & Variations

Beginner Tips

Focus on stabilizing your torso and, when you feel in control, focus on the control of your limbs.

Benefits

Challenges your ability to keep your torso stable.

Modifications

To modify, break the exercise down and do only the leg extension or the arm raise, rather than both. Do not combine the arm and leg movements until you have the strength to stabilize your torso.
