Assisted Leg Lowering to Bolster

This assisted pattern is to improve hip mobility and stability for the active straight leg raise pattern with the use of a bolster.

Body Parts Targeted: Single LegMobility

Starting Position: Supine

Begin in the supine posture by positioning yourself face-up so that your back is on the floor. Place both feet / Achilles on the bolster. Flex your hips to 90 degrees. If 90 degrees cannot be achieved, flex as much as you can while keeping your legs straight. Hold a handle in each hand and pull the tubing down enough to feel your core activate. Once in this position lower one leg to the bolster, while maintaining the other legs position. Work to get the heel to touch the bolster with a neutral pelvis. Return the band to the start position and repeat the sequence.
