Progressions & Variations

Tips

To help with balance, you can also raise your leg, bend your knee and support your leg by cradling it with both hands under your thigh.

Avoid extra movement from the hips during the exercise. Keep the hips stable and allow the majority of the movement to come from the ankle.

Try to make the largest circles possible within your flexibility range.
