March MATness Day 6: One Leg Stretch

The One Leg Stretch, Single Leg Stretch.  Doesn’t matter what you call it, the mechanics are the same.  One thing that can make this movement really effective is energy.  Up your game on this exercise and put a real emphasis on the leg switch.

Imagine a bow and arrow.  Create the tension of the bow’s string with the push-pull energy between the arms and the bent leg, then imagine that leg  SHOOTING into length like an arrow out of a bow as the arms release it and it straightens.  Practice slowly a few times and then add tempo to get a bit more.
