Knee Stirs – Core Exercise Progression

O.k. so we’re going to work on a Core Progression exercise called Knee Stirs. So in this case we’re to get you breathing, breathing in, as you breathe out softening your chest and engaging your core and bringing this right knee up towards your chest.

Let’s go again, breathing in, breathing out, soften here, a little core just subtle bring the right knee up, keeping the left stable and from here now we’re going to work on little movements so as you breathe out soften your chest, engage your core take your leg away, control it, breathing in coming back and around like a circle. Breathe out, core on, breathe in come back and around maintaining the leg neutral. Go again, breathing out stabilizing the other hip so that it doesn’t twist, breath in coming back down and you could probably do about 6 to 10 repetitions before you hit fatigue and take a break trying to maintain that breath pattern. Breathing out lowering the leg down now, good.
